Individualized Supported Living (ISL) services are available to those individuals who have a need to move out of their current living situation and into a home of their own. For most of us, growing up and moving out of our family home is a typical progression of life. For many families, supporting a family member at home with an intellectual or developmental disability throughout adulthood is a loving and challenging endeavor. Due to age, health concerns or other issues, sometimes families cannot continue. Where shall a loved one then go to? Often, in the past, these individuals have had to move to another county or even state to receive these residential type services. That will no longer have to be the case! ICAN Individualized Supported Living Services allows an individual to live in a home of their own, often with a roommate. ISL services and supports are individually planned and budgeted for each individual person served. Services are designed to assist individuals in acquiring, retaining and improving their self-help, socialization and activities of daily living depending upon the needs of the individual. Services may include up to 24 hours of support as specified in his/her Individual Service Plan. The residence (house or apartment) is a private dwelling, not a licensed facility and must be owned or leased by at least one of the individuals residing in the home and/or by someone designated by one of those individuals such as a family member or legal guardian. When needed, ICAN staff can also help locate the appropriate house and act as a liaison between the landlord, the family and the individual. By providing ISL services to individuals in this community, their families and friends can continue to see them as often as they wish, stop by and visit, stay and share a meal and continue to have the support of family in their own community.
