Live at home –
Healthy, safe and active
Independent Community Living provides affordable services that meet the unique needs of people with intellectual or physical disabilities. We offer personalized support that can range from round-the-clock assistance to fewer than two hours of service per day, making us distinct in the Midland area.
Some of our services include:
- Home management (housekeeping, laundry, shopping, etc.)
- Meal preparation
- Help with bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting
- Assistance with medication (following prescribed directions, documenting intake)
Our goal is to help our clients maintain self-determination – the ability to manage their own lives as much as possible. In fact, we call our clients “participants,” because they play an active role in their care and their communities. Together with each participant and his or her support network, we develop a Person-Centered Plan to deliver customized care.
Our participants feel supported, safe and loved, because our warm, caring staff are trained in areas such as first aid, Person-Centered Care and Recipient Rights. We also train our staff in areas specific to each participant’s needs, whether those needs relate to a hearing impairment, dietary restriction or other issue. We constantly listen to our participants and regularly review their Person-Centered Plans, so that we always provide the appropriate care.
A community approach
That sets us apart
Social engagement and a sense of connection to one’s community are important for any person. We help our participants overcome barriers to social activity by providing transportation and accompaniment to events. We help find opportunities for them to get involved and avoid isolation.
Our value of community and connection extends to our own staff. We go above and beyond to support our employees with training and tools they need to do their jobs exceptionally, including reliable transportation, access to childcare, and enrichment opportunities not typically given to people in similar roles.
Whether you have been referred to us by another agency or are hearing about us for the first time, we would love to speak with you about our services.

We also accept private pay, with affordable rates ranging from $19 per hour for housekeeping and personal care to $25 per hour for medical coordination. Don’t hesitate to reach out – we’re happy to answer any questions you have.
