Individual Community Living Supports (ICLS)

Just because you’re alone at home, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a helping hand to assist you with the chores around the house. We understand that during the later years, being able to move around the house and do chores can be difficult. With our Individual Community Living Supports (ICLS), you have someone to handle some of the chores at home. Living in a clean and organized home is very beneficial to health and well-being.
