Improved Living Services, LLC (ILS) is able to offer individuals a variety of support services such as; case management, residential support, vocational and day treatment programming. These services are developed according to the needs of the individual and in some cases are coordinated with other agencies in the same location. This assures that services are comprehensive and convenient. Our programs are designed to assist individuals in learning independent living skills, coping skills, social skills, and community safety skills, all of which will support more independence and responsibility along with many opportunities to participate in the community.
Our agency works with referral sources to determine the types of services that best suit each individual. These services may include the development of an individualized Learning Center Program Plan. Our Learning Center has been developed to support those who may not qualify or thrive within a typical structured, vocational, or prevocational day service program. While still providing skill building and teaching, participants are able to select activities that are skill based, recreational, or community based. The atmosphere is smaller, more relaxed, and allows for personal choice and social participation. For a more detailed description of the facility and services, click below.
Residential Programs are varied and may include up to 24 hour staff support. This support may include overnight awake staff on the premises. Our Adult Family Home programs are generally designed to support a 2:1 consumer to staff ratio, while 1:1 support is generally available in our Supported Apartment programs. ILS is also able to offer a unique hybrid living arrangement through its 8-Plex Program. More information can be obtained by visiting the websites listed below;
ARPA HCBS Grant Creates Local Opportunities
DHS AWARDS $55,230.00 TO IMPROVED LIVING SERVICES, LLC
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has awarded Improved Living Services, LLC $55,230.00 to help Medicaid participants safely and securely utilize technology to stay connected to health and support providers, family and friends, and important community resources.
This funding is part of a total of $17.3 million awarded to 69 organizations statewide. These grants are intended to improve Medicaid home and community-based services that help older adults or those who have disabilities.
This grant award will allow Improved Living Services, LLC the opportunity to create internet connected, multimedia supported, teleconference enabled computer workstations in their HCBS approved Learning Center. Medicaid recipients may coordinate services through their Family Care organizations to participate in the Learning Center where they will receive training to safely and securely connect with their health providers, personal support systems, and important community resources.
“If the last few years of pandemic have taught us anything, we’ve learned how devastating it can be to lose connections to those important in our lives. This especially holds true for the adults with special needs that lost their ability to communicate with their doctors, counselors, friends, family, and community resources that are important to them. This grant award allows us to create opportunities for our Learning Center attendees to learn how to utilize technology and the internet to participate in telehealth appointments, communicate with care teams and loved ones, and stay connected to community resources such as DVR, the Job Center, employers, and local businesses. These individuals will never have to feel alone or disconnected again.”
