Life & Support Planning

Life Planning and Support

It's important for you to be involved in planning for your future and expressing what you want.

A person-directed plan tells us about you, your future dreams, supports needed to be successful and action steps to move towards those dreams. We want you to direct and own your plan. Every plan should uphold the following values and beliefs:

Inclusion – everyone wants to be a participating member of their community.

Citizenship – rights and responsibilities, valued roles, and choosing from a range of opportunities that enable one to learn, explore and participate.

Self-determination – everyone wants to have choice and control over their life.

Community as a First Resource – much of what we want in our life can be found in community – opportunities for jobs, volunteering, recreation, relationships and experiences. Your community is rich in possibilities.

Contribution and Participation – building on the gifts and talents that we all have will lead each of us to discover our own unique way to contribute and participate in community.

We are part of the Partners for Planning (P4P) Network P4P which is a family formed and directed non-profit organization providing resources and inspiration to families and their relatives with disabilities. Community Living Sarnia-Lambton sponsors the Ontario wide CHAP Care-Giver and Family Database which provides an opportunity for individual support workers and families to connect. The CHAP (Community Helpers for Active Participation) Program is an integral part of and helps connect individuals with disabilities and CHAP workers.
