I am interested in Shared Living services. Do I get to select the family with whom I’ll live?

What if I decide that I want to live with a different Shared Living Provider?

You, or your guardian, must provide 30-day notice for any changes in your Shared Living services contract. If you want to continue to receive Shared Living services, CLASS can assist you in finding a different Shared Living Provider.

Will I have my own bedroom if I choose to live with a Shared Living Provider?

Are any in-home services available to people who receive Shared Living services?

Shared Living Providers are responsible for finding persons to care for the hosted individual in the absence of the family. Anyone who provides care for the hosted individual must pass all required background checks before caring for the hosted individual. If a Shared Living Provider needs assistance in caring for the hosted individual, the Shared Living Provider is responsible for paying that caretaker out of the daily rate received for providing the Shared Living service. If you need assistance with this process, or have concerns about any behavioral issues, contact Chris Dial at 620.231.3131 or 800.479.0259 (toll free).
