Independent Living Halton is a non-profit organization established in 1992 for the purpose of assisting adults with physical disabilities. Assistance is delivered to support independence, self-determination and citizenship. We are in the business of delivering a basic need: accessible, affordable housing (Deborah’s Home) and personal and homemaking assistance (Attendant Services). The Housing and Attendant Services assist competent and responsible adults to live in the community of their choice and to fully participate in the usual activities of daily living.
The personal and homemaking assistance works at the direction and initiation of the client. The staff and client will discuss at the onset of the service to confirm the client’s direction/preferences and to confirm that the assistance can be completed in a safe manner for both staff and client.
Our personal and homemaking assistance is non-medical in nature. That means our assistance with medication is limited to what the client can not physically do to take their medication. The client is responsible to know what medication to take, when to take it and how to take it.
The timing and scheduling of assistance will be in response to consumer’s choice and limited by operating hours (6:00 am to 11:00 pm in the community). We will negotiate with clients to achieve maximum satisfaction with scheduling of assistance according to client need.
