Family Home Program

One option for adults with intellectual disabilities is to live in a supportive family setting.

CLD facilitates this program by identifying suitable families and aligning them with adults in need of this type of accommodation. 


Family Home


Respite care is a family support service that provides temporary relief from the emotional demands involved in caring for their adult family member. 

Respite provides adults opportunities to engage in community activities while allowing caregivers time for themselves. Overnight weekend respite is available in one of our group homes as well as Saturday program (some restrictions apply) offered during the daytime in the Options area.

Supported Independent Living


Many adults with intellectual disabilities can live in their own homes or apartments when provided with three to five hours of weekly support.

CLD assists adults to make informed choices regarding their goals, relationships, health, rights, community inclusion, safety and security.
