Community Support Services From Accord™

Day-To-Day Living Support

Accord™ offers Community Support Services, where individuals can be assisted with Semi-Independent Living Services (SILS) and Individualized Home Supports with Training (IHS w/ Training).  


Semi-Independent Living Services (SILS)

The goal of SILS is to support people in ways that enable them to achieve personally desired outcomes and lead self-directed lives. SILS include training and assistance to:

  • Engage in activities that make it possible for an adult with developmental disabilities or related condition(s) to live in the community
  • Exercise social, recreation and transportation skills, including appropriate social behavior
  • Learn and exercise the rights and responsibilities of community living
  • Maintain personal appearance and hygiene
  • Manage money, prepare meals and shop
  • Obtain and maintain a home
  • Perform first aid and obtain assistance in an emergency
  • Self-administer medication
  • Use the phone and other utilities

Individualized Home Supports with Training (IHS w/ Training)

This service level is provided to adults when they need support and training in at least one of the community living service categories.

Community living service categories include:

Community participation
• Safety
Household management
Adaptive skills. 

Service can be provided in the person’s own home, family’s home, or in the community. Service includes both support and training. Training for individualized home supports means a person receives direct training from a staff member on community living skills identified in the person’s assessment. Training includes skill-building to acquire, retain, and improve the person’s experience living in the community. 

24-hour emergency assistance is on-call counseling and problem solving and/or immediate response for assistance at a person’s home due to a health or personal emergency.
