Individual Community Living Support (ICLS) is a service for Elderly Waiver (EW) and Alternative Care (AC) participants. ICLS allows clients to take advantage of services and supports under one provider, while staying in the comfort of their own home.
ICLS offers assistance to those who need intermittent or moderate supervision or physical assistance to stay in their home.
What services are available?
Activities of Daily Living (ADLS)
ADLs are basic self care tasks that an individual does on a day-to-day basis. Common ADLs that HealthStar’s team of caregivers can assist with include dressing, grooming, bathing, and transferring (walking).
Household Management Assistance
Household management assistance includes a variety of common tasks that help keep your household running smoothly. ICLS caregivers assist with meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, laundry and budgeting/money management. Household management assistance also include providing transportation when necessary to help meet individual goals, or when other resources or supports are not available.
Health, Safety, and Wellness Oversight
HealthStar’s team of caregivers will identify any changes in the client’s health, including monitoring any existing health conditions, with referrals to case managers as needed. Our caregivers will also assist with implementing a safe living environment, such as reducing fall risks, and assisting with medication reminders.
Community Living Engagement
Community living engagement services help clients access resources, services, and activities outside the home. These services help the client develop and maintain a support system in the community.
ICLS services can provide transportation to outside resources when other resources or supports are not available.
Adaptive support works to encourage self-sufficiency and reduce the need for assistance. ICLS caregivers work with the client to develop and practice individualized strategies that promote independence, such as using calendars, making lists, and teaching how to use assistive technology.
Active Cognitive Support
Active cognitive support addresses issues and challenges that are important to the client. ICLS caregivers provide in-person or remote check-ins to provide support, guidance and problem-solve concerns related to daily living.
