Supported Residential Facilities
Supported Residential Facilities (SRF) provide accommodation and personal care for people who require low-level assistance, accommodation and support to live a fulfilling life in a home-like environment. They can access needed services both within the facilities and through external providers. Personal care services may include help with bathing and dressing, managing medication and supplying healthy food, or even help with personal finances.
SRF are privately owned facilities regulated under the Supported Residential Facilities Act 1992, which defines a supported residential facility as ‘a premises at which, for monetary or other consideration (but whether or not for profit), residential accommodation is provided or offered together with personal care services (other than for members of the immediate family of the Proprietor of the facility).
