Helping You Reach Your Independent Living Goals

Independent Living Services

 

As a MyCIL Independent Living Client, we can connect you with independent living services in your community that meet your unique needs and goals. Working with a MyCIL Independent Living Specialist, you’ll identify the barriers holding you back to determine the services you need to overcome them.

 

Stay in Your Own Home, Comfortably and Safely

Home Modifications

 

If you want to live in your own home, and you need modifications to make that happen, we can help. Through a waiver system, MyCIL offers home modifications that make it possible for you to stay exactly where you should be: in your own home.

 

Your experienced Independent Living Specialist will work with you to develop the best plan. Then, MyCIL home modification experts will modify your home. Depending on your needs and home, we will:

 

  • Widen doorways to adjust for your wheelchair
  • Install grab bars in the shower, by the tub or by the toilet
  • Install walk-in or roll-in showers and/or tubs
  • Install handrails on staircases
  • Install ramps for convenient entries and exits
  • Complete any other home modifications you need

 

With home modification services from MyCIL, you enjoy greater comfort and ongoing access to community activities and services.

 

You also enjoy increased safety. Home modifications can prevent accidents by removing safety hazards. And that means greater peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

 

Take Advantage of Today’s Technology to Live Your Best Life

Assistive Technology

 

Whatever assistive technology you need to live independently, we can help you get it. Your dedicated Independent Living Specialist will work with you to determine the best assistive technology for your unique needs.
