Independent Living for People with Disabilities
The Independent Living Rehabilitation Program (IL) helps consumers live a more independent life. IL provides an alternative to living in a nursing home or other facility for eligible individuals.
Services are person-centered and may be provided directly, purchased or coordinated through other community resources. If the Independent Living program is unable to meet a person's needs, that individual may be referred to other partners for services as appropriate.
Services may include:
- Guidance and counseling
- Rehabilitation engineering
- Home and vehicle modifications
- Independent living skills training
- Certain equipment purchases
- Assistance with leisure activities
- Personal assistance services
- Registering your service animal
You may be eligible for IL services if:
- You have a significant disability
- The disability severely limits your ability to live independently
- Our services will improve your ability to live independently
The financial resources of eligible individuals will be considered for the delivery of some services provided under the IL program. Some services are available to eligible individuals without regard to their financial need.
