Residential Services

MACL_image (10)The historic move to close British Columbia’s large provincial institutions resulted in the development of full-time residential supports for individuals moving to the community of Mission.

MACL currently operates five licensed community homes, each providing staff support 24 hours per day. Individuals living in these homes have varying levels of need for assistance with activities of daily living. Each is encouraged to participate fully in household routines with staff offering dignified and respectful support as needed.

Support is offered in the following areas

  • Emotional and physical well-being
  • Creating and maintaining a home
  • Personal health care
  • Relationship development and maintenance
  • Community involvement
  • Communication
  • Recreation and leisure
  • Goal setting

Home Share

Home Share is a living option in which an adult with a developmental disability shares a home with someone who is contracted to provide ongoing support. People within a home not only share their home but also their lives.

Support may include assistance in:

  • self-care,
  • relationship building,
  • life skills,
  • training to develop skills,
  • use of community resources
  • attending activities in the community

The key to successful, long term shared living opportunity is matching the needs, interests and lifestyles of both the people receiving service and the shared living contractor.

All residential placements are based on referral from Community Living British Columbia.

Services are available by referral only (Community Living British Columbia) and may be of a temporary, short-term, long-term or life long nature.
