Independent Living Services

Independent Living Services are ideal for people who are relatively independent and need only a few hours a week of assistance. We tailor our service to the individual to optimize the time of service to be the most beneficial to them, whatever their needs may be.

Independent Living Services (ILS) are ideal for people who are relatively independent and need only a few hours a week of assistance. PCS tailors a unique program for each individual so they receive the optimum benefit out of the hours of service. ILS hours are designed to be utilized on a 1:1 basis and can be authorized for up to 20 hours per month per person. Additional hours may be approved by the Regional Center on an exception basis. Hours of support are usually utilized to provide assistance with money management, bill paying, medical appointments, community connections, social integration and home maintenance. Individuals can start with ILS support or transition from SLS support to ILS support if/when their support needs to change and their independence grows.

PCS provides ILS in Santa Barbara, Ventura County.

Respite:  The primary purpose of the PCS In-House Respite Services Program is to provide temporary relief to a regular caregiver of an individual with a developmental disability.  By providing respite we will assist family members in maintaining the individual at home, provide basic care and supervision in the absence of the family, relieve family from the demands of care giving and attend to the individual’s basic self help needs and other activities of daily living including interaction, socialization and continuation of their regular daily routines.

PCS provides Respite care in Santa Barbara and Ventura regions.
