Housing with special services for adults (LSS)

There are two types of housing with special services for adults – group housing and service housing.

Group housing may be offered to people who have such a great need for supervision and care that it is necessary for staff to be on hand at all times. Group housing consists of a small number of apartments that are grouped around common spaces. A permanent group of staff is responsible for meeting all the support needs of the residents, including leisure and cultural interests.

Service housing consists of a number of apartments which have access to shared services and a permanent group of staff. The apartments are generally adapted to the individual's needs and are usually located in the same or surrounding buildings. Each resident must be offered 24-hour support in their own apartment to the extent that he or she needs.
