UCP of Maine Starts “Shared Living”

BANGOR- As of Tuesday, August 13, 2013, United Cerebral Palsy of Maine has been approved by Maine’s DHHS Office of Aging and Disability Services (OADS) to be an Administering Agency of “Shared Living” Home Support Services. 

“Shared Living” is a residential option for adults with intellectual disabilities who qualify and are approved for MaineCare Section 21 Home and Community Based Waiver level of services.  A “Shared Living” arrangement is similar to an adult foster care model.  A consumer lives in the home belonging to the shared living provider with the consumer becoming part of the fabric of the shared living provider’s life: the provider’s family, home and community.  DHHS/OADS refers a consumer to a certified organization, such as UCP of Maine, for the provision of services in a “Shared Living” arrangement when that need is identified in the consumer’s Person Centered Plan and the consumer’s team agrees this is the best residential service needed to provide the least restrictive environment.  

A Shared Living Provider is a person who is self-employed and works as independent contractor for an administering agency in order to provide integrated family living and direct support to a consumer.  As an administering agency, UCP of Maine will provide essential contracted consultative services and quality assurance reviews for its providers.  UCP of Maine will assist its providers in fulfilling the imposed provider requirements, including training requirements, and obligations set forth by DHHS/OADS regulations and agreed upon by the consumer’s Person Centered Planning Team.  Providers are required to successfully complete the Direct Support Professional (DSP) training, Certified Residential Medication Aide (CRMA) training, Clients Rights, Behavioral Intervention (behavior regulations) and Reportable Events; and, become a certified provider by an administering agency.

“Shared Living” allows consumers to remain in the least restrictive family-type setting with the goal of these consumers achieving optimal community inclusion and, thus, the highest possible quality of life and cost-effectiveness of services.

For further information on UCP of Maine’s “Shared Living” Home Support Services contact-Will Sewall, Adult Residential Team Leader, at (207) 951-6015.  At UCP of Maine we promote life without limits for people with disabilities.           

Seeking Children with Cerebral Palsy



We are looking for children ages 8-18 with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy (CP) to participate in a research study here at Spaulding Rehabilitation Network Research Institute (SRN-RI).

This study involves a form of non-invasive brain stimulation called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and also motor training. We are looking to see if this technique can change how children with CP learn new movements.

This study has seven visits over about 2 weeks. Children will be compensated for their time with a $25 gift card. For more information on the study, please contact Kayleen Weaver, at 617-952-6151, or kmweaver@partners.org
