Supported living has been described as an approach that contributes to higher lifestyle quality.
We compared supported living and traditional residential support.
Twenty supported living participants were matched with 20 participants receiving traditional support.
Results indicated that participants receiving supported living services were more likely to be experiencing features of supported living and that supported living participants experienced significantly more community activity variety, did community activities more frequently, and did preferred community activities more frequently.
Further, they engaged in activities with more people and did activities with these people more frequently.
The costs were similar for providing supported living and traditional support.
