I like that I have my independence in my home, but that I always have the assistance of my caregivers if I need help with anything. ILHS makes sure that I have healthy meals, my medical needs are monitored and taken care of, and that I get out into the community safely and on a regular basis. ILHS is a fun, loving, and caring environment that has allowed me to make long-lasting relationships with both the staff and the other Individuals I live with.
