Opportunity Inc. Experiences Challenges for Community Supportive Living Members

Since starting Community Supportive Living, Opportunity Inc. has realized some challenges the members face. One of the most common things we see is either the potential for members to be lonely or that they have expressed that they are lonely. Because of this, we have adapted a portion of our assessment to include questions that facilitate a dialogue about members interests, activities, natural supports, friendships and family relationships. Having this information helps staff better be able to support members in building their support systems to prevent loneliness.
