In order to live well to ones fullest potential, persons with diverse disabilities often need Advocacy and Support to effect meaningful changes within their lives and communities in which they live. The CILCP offer these services in the following ways:

Live Well 360

The Live Well 360 (LW 360) is a comprehensive person-driven assessment tool that will address 28 areas of a person’s life to evaluate areas that may need more skills training or identify a need to be filled.  The areas are personal and life impacting such as housing, transportation, attendant care services, durable medical equipment, assistive technology, home modification, etc. The LW 360 will create a Live Well Plan that provides a road map that not only focuses on physical health, but also includes these other areas of quality of life activities. Each will be individualized to the consumers’ unique needs, mapping the person with a disability's way to greater independence and opportunity to live well. A LW 360 is particularly useful when a person is ready to be discharged from a hospital or rehabilitation facility. To request a LW 360 or more information, please contact Pam Auer or call the CILCP's toll-free Live Well Hotline at 1877.865.4893.

Advocacy

There are often times when a person living with a disability will run into road blocks when attempting to access products, goods and services. Through advocacy, the CILCP's experienced staff may be able to work along side of you to remove these roadblocks. 

Nursing Home Transitioning

Nursing Home Transitioning (NHT) Services consist of an array of services which support Consumers' goals to transition fom an insitutional setting to an independent living setting within the community. NHT will assist anyone wanting to relocate from a nursing home back into community living by identifying and overcoming barriers to moving from the nursing facility to the community.  Some of these barriers include housing, rental assistance, household item,  and transportation from the facility and in the community. CILCP's NHT program serves the following counties: Adams, Bedford, Blair, Cumberland, Franklin, Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata, Mifflin and Perry Counties. For more on NHT, please contact Teresa Carrera
