Adolph Ratzka once said that independence “Means that we (people with disabilities) demand the same choices and control in our everyday lives that our non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends take for granted.” Independent Living has many program areas and services that are provided to consumers. At the core of what we do is the idea of independence and that the best person to direct what services they utilize is the person living with their disability.
Home Health Care
The IC is the only provider in Colorado Springs that is approved to provide the In Home Support Services (IHSS) Program to consumers who receive Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) thru the State of Colorado’s medicaid program. IHSS allows clients to direct their own care for routine and repetitive activities of daily living. Home Health services include Registered Nurses, Physical and Occupational therapists, and Certified Nursing Assistants to provide necessary medical care in the home under the orders of a physician.
