Living on your own is a big step towards independence. Everyone needs a support system when they move into their own place. In Aspire’s Independent Living program, people with disabilities can settle into a place and live on their own with reliable partnership from our skilled team members.
If you or your loved one is living independently or preparing to, we can collaborate with you to understand your goals and coordinate on the right support and schedule for you.
Since no two people’s needs are the same, we work with you to set goals for independent living.
We provide hands-on learning for life skill building in your home.
Caring team members are there for you when you need help, spending quality time with you up to 15-20 hours a week.
We’re all unique and so are our needs as we become more independent. We’ve organized our program into two focus areas to showcase how Aspire can plug in to better serve people’s independent living needs.
We call and stop by to check in on an agreed-upon schedule—and are never far away if you need us.
We advise on the right system of resources, checklists, and notes to help establish habits and routines.
We coach on what to do and who to call in an emergency, who to let into your place, and how to handle scammers.
We can join in, so meeting neighbors, exploring new areas, and working out transportation feels comfortable for everyone.
Shopping and Cooking
We’re happy to work with you on budgeting, your grocery list, and cooking healthy meals…or cookies as a special treat.
We can help with the doctor, coaching you on how to advocate for yourself and get what you need.
We can work together on how far your money can go, helping you prioritize spending and save.
We can come along to help with errands and appointments—we’re even happy to drive.
We love welcoming new friends into our programs! Please fill out this form and an Aspire ambassador will connect with you and answer any questions you might have.
You can also call us at (320) 4-Aspire or (320) 427-7473.
“When I moved out, I didn’t know what to expect. Now I live on my own with the help of some of the greatest people here. I have a learning disability but that doesn’t stop me from my goals of reaching the next level of what I can do.”Jesse
“Aspire taught me how to cook. We also handle money. And we clean up a bit. Aspire helps me in every way.”Doug
