The new residence in Alberton will accommodate a total of eight residents full-time when at capacity, along with one room for respite. Currently there are six individuals living at the home. The residence has two, two-bedroom dorm style apartments ( one on the first floor with the other on the second ), with the remaining four bedrooms on the first floor. It is not a home with eight bedrooms, rather the organization is trying it's best to accommodate the varying needs of individuals applying to live at the home. For those individuals who are able to live more independently, Community Inclusions wants to try to accommodate that. There will also be a Community Inclusionâ€™s staff at the residence to provide supports to the residents when necessary, with a second staff being available at busy times during the day.
