Independent Living Skills Services (ILS)
ILS supports an individual to develop, maintain, and improve community living skills. ILS assists individuals by developing personal goals and providing 1:1 support to help with a variety of areas. Goals are geared towards successful, independent living; a support plan may include improving their health and housing, completing important paperwork, developing supportive relationships, obtaining community resources, or finding employment or volunteer work.
As facilitators, we hold the understanding that within a Person-Centered planning process, there are many tools and methods that can be used and often are employed given each person’s unique situation.
Together we explore the balance between what is important to a person and for a person. Person-Centered facilitation holds at its core, the individual rights and experiences that should be available to all. Promoting a world where all people have control and choice in their lives.
AIM Services strives to provide unique supports for the people we care about. To continue offering quality care, we’re expanding. We have created a supported apartment model that will assist individuals in maintaining and building independence. This apartment community will benefit residents through natural supports and meaningful friendships.
Our supported apartments offer ILS/SLS (Independent living skills training/Supported Living Services), and 24-hour emergency assistance. Individuals have the option to live in their own independent apartment, or with a roommate. AIM has one- and two-bedroom apartments available and we offer customizable supports to meet varying needs. Apartments available in South St. Paul.
