Ohio Shared Living

Ohio Shared Living is a service authorized by county boards of developmental disabilities for people who live with a paid caregiver that delivers at least 20 percent of their personal care and supportive services.  That can be in the caregiver’s home or in the home of a person that needs support.

Ohio Shared Living caregivers or providers coordinate the support needs outlined in a person’s service plan, and help to facilitate those services.

Being a caregiver is a full-time commitment; however, caregivers can still work outside the home full-time, and respite programs are available to support caregivers.
