Building a Support Circle (Family, Friends)

Everyone needs support in their lives. This is a key concept in supporting people to have the kind of life that they desire. Individualized supports will focus on developing and building circles of support for the person so that they may become as autonomous as possible and use natural supports to have the successful life that they desire. The circle is responsible to listen to the person in an attempt to understand their desired lifestyle, to plan, and accept duties and responsibilities to participate in the life of the focus person, as they are willing and able.
