Home Sharing

An Introduction to Home Sharing

Here at Saltgrass Health we help find Home Share Providers who match as closely as possible with you or your loved one. We help find homes for those who have been diagnosed with a Developmental Disability (DD) or who have been approved for Personalized Support Initiative (PSI). We take great care in finding the best match possible to suit the needs of those who are requiring support. All providers are screened very thoroughly and great consideration is taken when finding placements. Placements are closely monitored after they have been made, making sure that not only is the individual supported but the Home Share Provider as well. We take great pride in the relationships we hold with our Providers and Supported Individuals. There is always someone available to be on-call in case of emergency or inquiries, we are here for you and your family.

In most situations, home sharing involves very close relationships. The individuals in the home share more than physical space--they share their lives. The members of the home spend a lot of time together and are actively involved in one another’s daily activities. Alternatively, the home sharing arrangement can be characterized by more independent relationships. Members of the home generally go their own ways and come together at specific times or for specific purposes. The key to a successful placement is ongoing teaching of life skills and furthering ability. This helps ensure that the goals of creating an independent life for those supported will be met.
