Rating: 5 stars  

Independent Living does an outstanding job providing senior citizens with many services allowing them to live independently in their homes. Independent Living is operated very efficiently from top to bottom. The leadership team, employees, and volunteers are dedicated to delivering all of these much needed services. I am very proud to serve on ILI's board and be associated with this great organization!

Independent Living is a well known organization for helping Seniors remain safe in their own homes as they age. Their in home services are superb and their staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Independent Living staff made home modifications for my mother shortly after she had stroke. It allowed her to stay independent for three more years. Now, as a board member, I see from a different perspective how much the staff truly care about their clients--indeed they are more like "family" than clients.

Independent living is very helpful with services to their clients. They try to match the care giver with the client which helps greatly. They are timely and very understanding.

I have been the main caregiver for my Mother for the last 10 years. She is now 96, and in the last couple of years I have become increasingly burned out. I now have two wonderful women who help my Mother on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday so that I can have a break. They are wonderful and so kind and caring, and I am so grateful to them, and to Independent Living, for all they do.

Independent Living came into my life at a very stressful time for our family. My husband and I were struggling to deal with challenges that resulted from his chronic illness. Christina Snider was very kind and compassionate during our intake interview, and the services we received helped turn that summer around. I would not hesitate to recommend Independent Living to others who need help.
