Adult Placement

Adult Placement program supports adults who require a supported living environment. There are two adult group homes located in Inuvik for adults with cognitive or physical disabilities:

Adults may also be placed in a supported living home outside of our region (Yellowknife, Hay River, Alberta or British Columbia) to receive specialized supports.

 

The Inuvik group homes provide assisted living and day programming for the clients living in each home. Day programming is individualized and is based on each client’s abilities and needs.

 

An application is required to access supported living in Inuvik, Yellowknife, Hay River or for an Out of Territory placement. Applications are submitted by a Social Worker in consultation with the adult or the adult’s guardian. An Out of Territory application is typically submitted by the Manager, Social Supports in consultation with the adult or the adult’s guardian.
