A Resource Manual - Developing an Effective Assisted Living for High Risk Seniors Program in Your Community

This resource manual has been prepared to provide Local Health Integration Networks and health service providers with an understanding of how the Supports for Daily Living model works, evidence of the positive impact the service can have on health system performance, and the background knowledge and guidelines to help you develop a Supports for Daily Living service in your respective communities. We believe that the manual can help to understand the thinking and background considerations to implementing a challenging new program design, transferring the new design into a project and moving forward towards project completion.
