Independence Care System, has become the lifeline to my everyday living. When I sat on a wheelchair in 2004, the world just stopped. My life became a non ending survival, one without purpose. It was in 2005 when someone mentioned Independence Care System. I figure it was going to be a pointless organization, lots of talk, not any solutions to my pressing needs. I took a chance, not because I believed, but becuse of my daily inactivity, apathy, and boredoom. The best decision I could have ever made
Within a week of becoming a member, I was attending evening social programs. I was interested in the Writing Workshop, Movies@ICS, Friday Night Hangout, and Karaoke@ICS. Well, after five (5) years I have yet to hear of any other organization's program that can compare . Especially when the members are their priority. Their health, social activities, and progress in their home and surroundings. The groups ICS have developed, are member-suggested and, in many instances, instructed. In fact, ICS is always asking members for new ideas. ICS has a fierce loyalty to its members, and will go through great lengths to prove it. They are the family that keeps on giving.
Independence Care System gave me a life I thought was beyond my reach. There are no way to give my thanks, or my appreciation to the staff, members, and to the programs that have become part of my new and improved life.
