Independent Home Care Program
Link’s Independent Home Care Program helps you to stay in your home despite living with a disability. If you have a disability and do not qualify for Medicaid, we can still help you obtain in-home attendant care. This is a private pay service, where you would reimburse LINK for paying your workers, plus a handling fee.
We share our experiences and/or knowledge or link you with someone who can relate to the changes and challenges that you might be facing.
We do not operate a residential setting, but rather act as a referral source for appropriate, accessible housing.
We encourage people with disabilities to learn from each other in support groups. These groups can be accessed either through the community or LINK.
Durable Medical Equipment Loan Pool
We have a limited pool of durable medical equipment for short-term loan to you, such as wheelchairs, walkers, etc. We will assist you in locating new or used equipment.
We can Braille documents for your use or for the community. (Fees apply for use by community.)
LINK has a list of sign language interpreters available upon request when needed.
