§58632. Implementation of SLS Philosophy.

A service design shall provide generalized examples sufficiently detailed to illustrate and demonstrate the SLS vendor's competence and suitability to implement the service orientation and principles of SLS stated in Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 4689(a)(1) through (a)(8). This demonstration shall include, but not be limited to, a general explanation of how the SLS vendor will achieve all of the following:
(a) Support of the consumer's assumption of responsibility for making life decisions on the basis of personal preference that enhance the prospects for increased independence, self-reliance, and self-esteem, and for implementing those decisions effectively;
(b) Provision of ongoing monitoring to help confirm, assure, or signal that:
(1) Significant changes in the needs and preferences of the consumer are reflected in the SLS component of the consumer's IPP;
(2) Supports and services remain responsive to the consumer's needs and preferences; and
(3) Risks of endangerment to health, safety, and well-being are minimized.
(c) Provision of necessary and appropriate assistance to the consumer, subject to the prohibitions on payments enumerated in Section 58611 (b) in locating, securing, and maintaining a place to live;
(d) Assistance to the consumer in structuring and maintaining a:
(1) Social environment within the home typical of other non-institutional, non-licensed homes in the community, in which persons without disabilities live;
(2) Community-oriented life in which all generic and natural supports are accessed consistent with the needs and preferences of the consumer; and
(3) Network of critical and durable relationships with others, including a circle of support consisting of a majority of members who are not paid to support the consumer, and with appropriate family participation.
