HDSI's Supportive Services link residents to supportive, medical and social services provided by public and nonprofit agencies within the jurisdiction of the proposed housing facility.

The goals of Supportive Services are:

  1. Assure a high quality of life for residents

  2. Enable residents to retain their autonomy and "age in place" for as long as possible

  3. Work with residents on a case-management basis to provide available assistance for their particular needs

  4. Ease a resident's transition to increased care when "in-home" independent living is no longer an option

  5. Assist in maintaining a network of informal and formal support systems within each building's neighborhood

To meet these goals, HDSI Supportive Services provide:

  1. Resources and information within a network of community officials and organizations that assist elderly and disabled people

    Assistance with a variety of services requested or needed by the community, such as case management, In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS), on-site and home-delivered meal services, transportation information and assistance, preventive health screenings, and legal advocacy through nonprofit agencies

  2. Customized services that assure individualized, flexible and creative assistance

  3. A local directory of service supplies and suppliers

  4. Educational presentations and seminars about issues

  5. Advocacy on behalf of residents. This includes utility overage charges, denial of service and/or other appeals
