Individual Community Living Support

Offers assistance and support to Elderly Waiver (EW) and Alternative Care (AC) participants who need reminders, cutting, intermittent or moderate supervision, or physical assistance to remain in their own homes. A qualified worker will deliver a range of individualized supports.

Service categories include:

  • Support with Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL)
  • Active cognitive support
  • Household management assistance
  • Health, safety, and wellness oversight
  • Community living engagement, and
  • Adaptive support service – help to adopt ways to meet needs that encourage self-sufficiency and reduce reliance on human assistance

A person may receive services face-to-face or via remote communication, such as via telephone or the Internet. The amount and type of service will be outlined in the Individual Community Living Support (ICLS) planning form. The ICLS planning form is a communication and planning tool for the participant, case manager, and ICLS provider.

ICLS must be delivered in a single-family home or apartment that the service participant or their family owns or rents, as demonstrated by a lease agreement, and maintains control over the individual unit. Providers of ICLS may not be the landlord of the participant nor have any interest in the participant’s housing. Providers may not be an arranged home care provider for housing with services establishment where the participant resides.
