Services are individually tailored supports that assist with the acquisition, retention, or improvement in skills related to a participant’s continued residence in his or her own home or family home. Personal care/assistance may be a component part of CLS services but may not comprise the entirety of services.
CLS services are offered to participants who live in their own home or family home. CLS services include training and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, toileting, and transferring, and with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), such as personal hygiene, light housework, laundry, meal preparation, transportation, grocery shopping, using the telephone, and medication and money management.
These services include transportation to facilitate the individual’s participation in grocery or personal shopping, banking and other community activities that support continued residence of the participant in his or her own home or family home.
CLS services may include medically related services, such as basic first aid, arranging and transporting participants to medical appointments, accompanying participants on medical appointments, documenting a participant’s food and/or liquid intake or output, reminding participants to take medication, and assisting with or supervising self-administration of medication.
