“Sentry Living Solutions’ Services was founded on a commitment to providing people with disabilities with excellent care focused on high-quality services.” – Carlos Cienfuegos
Independent Living Services
Independent Living Services (ILS) provides skills and programs based on the belief that adults who have developmental disabilities may be able to live independently in a home of their choosing if they learn independent living skills. This assumes that the individual will be able to learn the necessary skills to maintain an independent household and that training will decrease over time.
Working one-on-one with a service provider, a person develops the skills needed to live successfully in their own home. This may include, but is not limited to, finding a suitable living arrangement such as a home or apartment, setting up a household, budgeting and money management, negotiating with a landlord, choosing a roommate, getting along with neighbors, shopping, meal preparation, housekeeping, safety and handling emergencies, use of community services, and caring for a pet. With ILS it is assumed that over time the client will become more independent and need less support from Sentry Living Solutions.
