Shared Living/Respite
Living Innovations is the leading Shared Living Provider Agency in the State of Maine. We provide Shared Living services to adults with developmental and cognitive disabilities throughout all counties in Maine, but Aroostook.

Our Providers will pass a stringent qualification process, are well trained to provide support and are eager to open their homes to a new member of the family. They will assist the client with skill building as identified in the client's plan.

We also provide temporary and emergency Respite services to clients not normally affiliated with Living Innovations. As the Administering Agency, Living Innovations will provide oversight to all placements made within our agency.
