Living On My Own
Community Services provide assistance and limited supports to persons residing in their own homes or in homes with their family. The services are predominately provided within Clinton County and surrounding counties, but have recently expanded into St. Clair County through the Metro location in Fairview Heights for the Adult Home Based Services and Supports.
Direct care staff providing services is certified in First Aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and Crisis Prevention Institute techniques (CPI). Staff development opportunities are available and encouraged. In addition to training, all staff are subject to drug testing and criminal background checks.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older, and approved for the program by the Ilinois Department of Human Services. Persons wanting this service should contact their local service coordination agency.
For more information contact the Intake Coordinator at StephanieC@commlink.org.
Don along with fellow program participants prepares apple pie in a jar for holiday gift baskets. The group spent the weekend in cabins at Carlyle Lake. The weekend was not all peeling, slicing, cooking and mixing the pie filling. There was also time for trail hikes and roasting hotdogs over the campfire.
