For many people, living life to the fullest means being able to participate and be included in their communities. That may mean shopping at a local grocery store, singing in the church choir, eating at a local restaurant, or working a job that pays the bills.
Increasingly adults with disabilities and their families are looking at a variety of supports to help them contribute and live as independently as they can—whether that’s in their own homes, in an apartment with roommates, or with their families. Supports can include assistive technology; assistance from a disability service provider; community, state, and federal benefits; and/or help from friends and relatives.
