What Is ICLS?

Individual Community Living Supports (ICLS) is a comprehensive service package that comprises six service components designed to provide older adults with the assistance and support they need to remain in their own homes. These services offer reminders, cues, intermittent/moderate supervision or physical assistance, as required.


Benefits Of The Program

  • Active Cognitive Support: Our ICLS providers can help problem-solve, provide assurance, observe/redirect, and provide check-ins to address cognitive, orientation, or behavioral concerns.
  • Adaptive Support Service: We support individuals to become more self-sufficient and less reliant on human assistance. This includes verbal, visual, or touch guidance, developing reminder tools, providing instruction for assistive technology, and practicing strategies for continued self-sufficiency.
  • Activities Of Daily Living (ADLs) Support: Our ICLS providers can help with ADLs such as dressing, grooming, eating, toileting, mobility, transferring, and positioning. We can also provide bathing assistance as needed.
  • Household Management: Our ICLS providers can help with household management tasks such as cleaning, meal planning/preparation, shopping, budgeting, and communications. We can also provide transportation when community resources and/or informal supports are not available to meet household management goals.
  • Health, Safety And Wellness: Our ICLS providers can help maintain overall well-being and mitigate environmental risks in the home. We can coordinate health changes, remind and assist with exercises and health maintenance, provide medication assistance, monitor health, and use medical equipment or adaptive technology as directed by licensed health professionals.
  • Community Engagement: Our ICLS providers can help individuals achieve meaningful participation in their community. We can assist in accessing community resources and activities to promote engagement and participation. We can also support the development and maintenance of an informal support network.
