Independent Living Halton has been assisting adults with physical disabilities in Halton since 1995. It began with Deborah's Home in Milton; a cozy five bedroom home fully wheelchair accessible and designed to fit into its residential setting. The service expanded to accommodate the needs of adults who wished to remain in their homes. This part of the organization now assists up to 30 adults at any one time.
The services are built around the ideas of maximizing peoples choices and opportunities to remain in control of their lives. There are no doctors, no nurses. We focus on getting the right person to you at the right time to assist with usual tasks of daily living. This is service to assist you, and so it is neither supervision nor companionship.
We are a not for profit corporation, federally registered as a charitable organization managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Primarily the services are funded by the Ministry of Health and Long -Term Care within the planning body of the Mississauga-Halton Local Health Integration Network. The corporation annually receives some donations which are used to offset transportation and equipment costs. There are lots of opportunities for volunteers and significant projects needing donations.
The development and expansion are due to the many people who have volunteered or donated to Independent Living Halton. If you cannot give of your time or money, your support by becoming a member indicates the value of the organization to the community and to the health system.
The details of the services and the necessary application forms can be found in the Services, Guidelines and About Us sections. If you can not find the information that you need please Contact Us.
