Supported Living

Supported living serves individuals in their homes, providing assistance and supervision around the clock, if necessary. 


In comparing Easterseals RISE’s supoorted living to other programs or providers, here are some things to consider:

  • Usually one to four individuals live in a house or apartment, and Easterseals RISE provides direct support professionals to assist with life skills, such as taking medication, grooming, cooking, cleaning or handling finances. 

  • In addition to providing support in individuals’ homes, our team ensures that participants have opportunities to pursue their personal interests and take part in local, regional and out-of-state activities and trips.

  • Around-the-clock support means questions can arise at any time. Our call center provides answers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Anyone — participants, family, staff — can call the center at 260.969.4254 for help with a wide range of concerns including medication questions, transportation questions, schedules, and more.

  • We offer a representative payee program for individuals who need help managing day-to-day finances.

Quick Facts 

Medical Care: All staff are CPR certified and trained on first aid and dispensing medication. Also, each staff member is trained on each individual’s specific information prior to working in the home. 

Transportation: When transportation is required, staff use their own vehicles. We check every staff member’s driving record upon hire and annually to ensure they maintain a clean driving record. Staff also must provide continuous proof of auto insurance. 

Accreditation: Supported living is a CARF-accredited program.
