The Difference Between Supported Living and Residential Living

At RISE Services, Inc. Oregon, we offer services that support and assist individuals with practical and personal growth opportunities. Part of what we do involves helping adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities live autonomously with limited to full-time support. We do this through our residential living services and supported living program. Keep reading to learn more about these services, how they are different, and which one would be best for you or your loved one.

The Difference Between Supported Living and Residential Living

Residential Living

Our residential living services provide 24/7 care in a residential setting for individuals living with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Each individual has a private room, and they receive services customized to their needs and preferences. Our residential living design is ideal for adults who need comprehensive care with around-the-clock support from trained professionals. While specific supports do vary, they can include the following:

  • One-on-one supervision
  • Skills training
  • Transportation assistance
  • Cleaning services
  • Meal assistance
  • Personal mentoring

Supported Living 

When adults need assistance with daily living tasks but don’t require 24/7 care, our supported living services are a great option. They allow an individual to live in their own home yet also receive personalized support based on their particular goals. Many adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities can live with some degree of independence. With our guidance and assistance, they can still have autonomy in most areas but receive support in daily tasks, such as these:

  • Grocery shopping and community food programs
  • Appointment scheduling
  • House cleaning
  • Budgeting and financial management
  • Meal planning and cooking
