Independent Living

Independent living, as seen by its advocates, is a philosophy, a way of looking at disability and society, and a worldwide movement of people with disabilities working for self-determination, self-respect and equal opportunities.

What an AMAZING 'Community of Grace' I belong to at Community Christian Church. Great message today Dave! THANK YOU for all that read my post on Wednesday asking for prayers. The prayers worked along with just having an INCREDIBLY LOVING GOD, and my work in living in trust and dependence on Jesus instead of battling independent living. Danny and I are blessed with being selected on Wednesday night by Bridge Communities to aid us in moving into our OWN apartment!! We are BEYOND thankful and excited. It reminds me how wonderful our God is and what a huge blessing this will be for Danny and I. We will be able to be our own Family - just him and I again and I couldn't be more thankful to all those that were praying for us, some not knowing me well why I was even asking for prayers. Thank you to all those at the Bridge organization that they heard my situation and 'story' and saw hope in me. Very touched on many levels. Love to all and thank you again for everyone's support. :) I've never had such an amazing . ...

This is Suffolk DPACs on-going campaign to high-light the coalition governments unfair & discriminatory treatment of Suffolk's disabled people and their family's. We Demand the coalition government: 1. Scrap work capability Assessments of Sick & Disabled People. 2, Scrap PiP (personal independence payments) & Restores Disability Living Allowance. 3.

From Bill Lough: I included this article to show that we are not alone in our concerns. This article appeared in the English newspaper, The Guardian, April 21, 2014 Scope is turning its back on disabled people like my sister The charity wants to move away from residential care homes – but independent living is simply not an option for some. My sister is 54 years old, and has lived very happily in her residential care home for the last 38 years. Nicky has cerebral palsy and relies entirely on her carers, many of whom have worked at this home for years. Last October, myself and other family members of residents received a letter from the charity Scope, which runs the home, informing us of ts proposed closure some time in 2015. Scope is a charity whose mission statement is that it exists "to make this country a better place for disabled people and their families". Yet it has decided to close 11 residential care homes under its control, including Hampton House in Northamptonshire, because it wants residents ...

Did you take it out of the box? Did you already microwave/cook it? Jesus Christ, I thought I was bad at independent living?
Ok folks, time to let the cat out of the bag & tell everyone what God is up to in our lives. Jim & I have become painfully aware over the last number of months that we are no longer physically able to do the maintenance & upkeep that is necessary to keep a home in good working order & repair & eye pleasing so we decided to look in a different direction of life. We began praying & seeking God's direction for alternatives. Where He has led us is to adult independent living. Oh believe me that might sound a little "old person-ish" but it is far from it. First & foremost for me is I will NEVER EVER have to cook again.NEVER! Three meals a day are provided if we so choose to eat in the dining room but hey with a culinary arts institute trained chef who wouldn't want to, right? We get house keeping once a week, all utilities are included, transportation to appointments if we want to utilize it, trips & activities planned & organized to enjoy with other folks our own age, a bank & beauty shop in the buildi ...

Moved my daughter Whitney into her new place, yesterday. She and her 2 little girls have been living with us for nearly four years. It's been exciting and hectic, as Whit prepared to return to independent living, in her own home, with her children. Her mother and I are very proud of her. She has recovered quite nicely from a tough divorce and done a terrific job of rebuilding her life as a single parent. She's a strong and loving mom and just an all-around beautiful person. She'll be fine. And, Tori and I now begin to reclaim our house and our life, as old people with adult children. Sarah's family plans to move out to their new place, as soon as next week, and that will just leave our youngest son, Jack, who is starting high school in the fall. Just the 3 of us in the house, for the first time since soon after we bought it. Seems like we've had every room full for so long. It'll be nice to have it all to ourselves again. So why did I wake up, so sad, this morning?

So I have been thinking. I know, it's a miracle. Recently I have felt like I have no purpose. So, I was pondering the possibilities. I've decided that I am going to put my hustle to good use in a new game. Real Estate School. My Papa made money as a successful Broker and Investor. So I am going to check into it. I plan to use the money I make to start the Foundation for Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury. The main goal of the Foundation will be to educate Patients, their families, and the public about Traumatic Brain Injury and the stigma associated. Ensure that Victims dignity is held in the digest regard. So these unique people can integrate back into society and lead productive lives. It is my intention to ensure certain rights for Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury thru legislation. The most important if these is guaranteeing independent living without fear of discrimination or abuse. While also gauranteeing safety from all who choose to be ignorant.

Week 3 : May 19, 2014 : This was the week of transitions my husband was taking a class in my hometown and we stayed with my mom. When we arrived my mom informed me that she was going to have to leave to Mexico to transition my aunt (her only sister) from independent living to assisted living. With FasterEFT I've learned that tapping in the moment is what helps the most. So there I was tapping about abandonment, tapping on growing old (me and family members), tapping on financially affording to care for my husband and I and other family members we want to help in their transitions while supporting our children in their own transitions to adulthood. So the cycle went...and then came the need to snack.interestingly enough Of look for something in the kitchen and be moved to drink water. This had been slowly happening since I started talking on food issues in my Level 2. FasterEFT has been instrumental in helping my cravings to eat and feed my emotions in order to silence them to ultimately subside to whisper ...

On May 15 I posted some details on my older bro' schizo' Bob's case. His wife died last Jan. so I've been getting over there to Mt. Holly each week to try to help him. Cleared 50 lg. bags of trash, cleaned 18 lg. bags of laundry & organized, replaced broken toilet & tried to get him a health aide. It seemed to me that his schizo' symptoms were much alleviated from what they were years ago. Perhaps new neural pathways had developed in his brain to help things. At this point in time it seemed that all he really needed was four hours of home health aide help 3X per week. The doc' wrote a script' for home health services evaluation. The state then intervened unknowingly by canceling Bob's Medicaid ins. when it canceled his wife's policy that he was on. Several visits to welfare office & 3 case manager interviews later, Bob had a new food stamp card and also once the state completed investigating (now 3.5 months since the doc' wrote the script' for the eval.), Bob had his Medicaid coverage restored.

This Memorial Day, Durham veterans have a Durham County Extension Master Gardener to honor for his singular leadership and commitment to their housing needs. Alex B. Denson, a Durham County EMG, Naval veteran, retired US Magistrate Judge, and long-time advocate for the Triangle community’s homeless, is working in partnership with the nonprofit Community Alternatives for Supportive Abodes (CASA) to build The Denson Apartments for Veterans. The construction project will offer a total of 23 units of permanent, supportive housing for homeless Durham veterans with disabilities. “Any of us could suffer a tragedy, accident, illness or bad luck at any time that could cause us to lose our jobs, our possessions, and our homes causing us to become homeless. If that happens, we are the same people we always were, but we need a hand up to be able to return to independent living in safe, comfortable housing. As a veteran, I feel that I am in a special group of people who have served their country, often at great s ...

With the recent story of the life for orphanage graduates living under the streets of Bucharest.

Tina It's with great joy that we are announcing that Daniela Goldstone is graduating on June 7th from Shepherds College in Union Grove Wisconsin. The past 3 years having been very exciting and challenging for her and she has worked so hard to accomplish her goal of becoming an independent adult. She has overcome so many barriers and is now a poised and confident young woman. She will soon complete her program in horticulture and small animal care. She has been living in her own apartment on campus and in the fall will be moving into her own apartment (maybe with a really lovely friend from college!) in Walworth Wisconsin. She will be, hopefully, starting her own career. She will live in a wonderful supportive community called Inspiration Ministries where she will continue t ...

I'm really getting ready to roll out my Wellness Coaching program. AND I've been approached by an educator in the hospital system where I work to be a vendor in an upcoming Wellness Fair. I'm also teaching classes in a local Independent Living community. I met with my biz coach for an intensive ALL day yesterday. I'm excited because my system is all coming together. Because of my own burn-out mid-life, my focus group is mid life professional women (no offence guys, Im not excluding men, just not focusing there) I've also met with a Human Design coach, and now understand why I reached the burnout state I did.

A final budget agreement has not yet been reached, there is still time to contact Legislators! PLEASE call Legislators today and ask them to increase Independent Living funding! Independent Living Funding has decreased or remained flat for the last 10 years. Ask for an increase in funding from $12.361 million to $15 million. This is an increase of less than $2.7 million. In 2012/2013, ILCs served 85,541 people, a more than 7% increase in service utilization compared to five years ago. As New York continues to implement major systemic reforms to the state's Medicaid system that drastically change the way health care is delivered to New Yorkers with disabilities, this number will continue to increase. The State should pre-invest Medicaid savings in Independent Living Centers to support their efforts to transition and divert individuals with disabilities from costly institutions to fully integrated community based settings. Data from the New York State Education Department, ACCES-VR, show that the work of IL ...
NEWSPAPER ARTICLE ABOUT COMMUNITY HEALTH FAIR Palestine Resource Center for Independent Living (PRCIL) will host their tenth annual Community Health Fair on Friday, April 4th. The fair, which includes speakers, free screenings, and free restaurant samplings, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Evangelistic Temple, 3011 North Loop 256 in Palestine. “Each year we have tried to give emphasis to a particular health issue that is rampant in our county. In past years we have targeted diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and promoted health and wellness alternatives, as well. These issues will all continue to be a part of the fair, however, since it is our 10 year anniversary, we wanted to call attention to another disparity which is very high in Anderson and surrounding counties,” said PRCIL Executive Director, Sara Minton. “The focus for this year’s fair will be colon cancer. The facts that we now know to be true in our area are as follows: • of all Texas counties, Anderson has one of the highest ...

This past Sunday I preached at Oak Terrace (Assisted and Independent Living). I arrive 10 minutes early and Chris Bode (one of our pianists) has already been leading the residents in worship through singing 10-15 minutes prior than I arrived. Marie Shaffer gets the meeting room set-up, invites residents to attend the service and helps with the seating, passes out song books, then helps residents (who need assistance) back to their rooms, and finally puts the room back together the way it was! We have many other volunteers just like Chris and Marie. Thanks to all for their service to Christ and to their ministry to the residents!

!!!URGENT!!! We have received a very sad message regarding a senior Seal Point Siamese: "While this may be out of your area. I am trying yo help my lifelong friend with an urgent situation. She has a beautiful senior cat in excellent health named Buddy, a seal point Siamese whom her mother has had since a baby. He is neutered, declawed, and vetted. In excellent health. About 18 months ago we moved her mother to The Cedars in McPherson KS an independent living apt and he has been her companion. Approximately a week ago she fell and was found unconscious and things have rapidly progress from independent living to Hospice in a matter of a week. Mum will not recover and Buddy must be placed. I have for over a week tried various avenues to place him with no success until one of my rescue partners suggested you. I do not want to place him in the local shelter as they will merely put him down. Buddy is 22 years old and really needs a place to call home for whatever time he has left.

Ira commented, "It's always a pleasure to introduce new audience members to the benefits of description. For more than 70 years, the Carroll Center has been serving the needs of blind and visually-impaired persons by providing rehabilitation, skills training, and educational opportunities.

We are having the public roll-out of Accessible Will County on Saturday, March 22 from 1-3 at the Joliet Historical Museum. Please join us! Accessible Will County An Overview With the Will-Grundy Center for Independent Living as the lead partner, The Accessible Cities Alliance (ACA) was formed in 2003 after a peaceful protest was held in front of a local restaurant. The eatery had no accessible restrooms. A few months later, the owner installed a unisex, fully accessible restroom. This success was huge, yet more work needed to be done. The Will-Grundy Center for Independent Living Board decided a full-fledged campaign was necessary to highlight the lack of accessible public accommodations. The first meeting was held in early 2003 and included supporters from local hospitals, chambers of commerce, cities, counties, and disability advocates. The ACA focuses on public accommodations as identified in Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Alliance worked with Joliet City Officials and ...

Hello friends and family! This is the first time ever I'll be running in the Broad Street Run (or anything beyond a 5K for that matter), and I'm excited that I'll also be promoting a great cause! One of the characteristics that I value most is 'compassion'; the ability to lend a helping hand to someone in need or simply down on their luck. It's a true testament to the human spirit! Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national for-purpose organization that helps those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent living. Please help donate to reach my goal, and touch the lives of those in your community!

My paper delivered at the Literature and disability serious of talks Good evening all. My name is Dermot Walsh and this is Allison my Personal Assistant, In the last number of weeks we have heard how disability is portrayed through literature. From tiny Tim to the great Irish poets, my left foot and the war. I was taken by the Poet Theo Dorgan when he spoke about his brother with such great pride and rightly so. I am not a writer but I talk to you as a disability activist. My party piece is taking brown off “you’re not my mother never forget that” great scene. Ok, let go What I liked most about this serious of lectures is that fact we kept away from polities and I intent to do likewise. Like brown I started my education in Dublin 4 and also like Brown I was inspired by Robert ColIis. It was interested that the fact Collis was a medical doctor, people presumed he worked within the Medical modal. On further research I discover Collis was also a writer, so I would suggest that this is the real rea ...

So enjoy face book friends and relatives-. Judy, you wrote on lined paper, Bethlehem, Jesus was born there, in Bethlehem, for me in my home. I w doing both music and poetry. You said you had written poems or music but was believing singing good songs was your first priority. I'm proud of you and how far you came since I left in 93 went to Overland Park, Ks. and then in a condo I had updated and lived there till 2010. Got sick enough that friends, family, and doctors, decided I need to live in a health care facility, other than independent living. I had a long term care living insurance policy that helps pay costs. I like it here but had to go through tremendous adjustments. Had a lot going for me there in so many places, with what I did and could do, but had to change a lot to survive-so, I'm here at JKV Care Center. I can do quite a bit but will tell later what I've done that's been exciting and compensatory. Will tell later what I've been doing the last 100 years. Fondly, with Love, Rita Ulrikson

My friend wrote the best speech ever omfg " Independent Living Speech Rebecca Ross It's easy to classify a mono-toothed purple dinosaur as a fun, loving, and simplistic type of organism but today I'm here to prove you wrong. Barney may not be the most satanic life form available for the people of the world's hands to reach out and cast judgment upon, but he is definitely not the least. Point number one: Singing songs such as "I love you, you love me" and "A stranger is a friend you have not yet met" imply the idea that songs teach you important things in life and they are considerable role models. With today's music, we can all see why that's not a swell idea. Point number 2: "Barney says" and the infamous song "Clean up" indicates the idea of "don't think for yourself, do what you're told." If that doesn't sing satanic, I don't know what does. Point number 3: Barney is modeled after a T-rex, which we all know as being a dangerous meat-eating predator. Point number 4: Unable to think for themselves, infa ...

Got Wine? I thought you may be able to help me out with a project I am involved in with Homeless Solutions (more about them at the bottom). I’m on the committee for their upcoming Dream Builders’ Bash on Friday, March 28th at the Westin Governor Morris. I’m helping them get wine donations for their Wine Pull raffle. It’s a fun twist on the average raffle. Here’s how it works. Wine corks are sold at the event for $35 each. The cork will have a number on it that corresponds to a bottle in our wine rack for the purchaser to take home - everybody is a winner! The value of these wines range from $35 to $100 plus. Last year they sold over 160 bottles in the raffle and raised over $5,700! Anyway, I’m hoping you can donate a bottle of wine or chip in with a group of friends. It’s easy to do …. (1) I can pick up a bottle from you that you either purchased or are donating from your own wine collection. We ask that the value be $35 or more. (2) Order ONLINE from Cambridge Wines (they are givi ...

To all local Hartford/Upper Valley residents: This is a call for help. I am disabled and can't do a whole lot. I am being transferred to a different unit in my apartment complex (going from 2 bedroom down to a 1 bedroom). I have no friends to help me. I have called Senior Services who directed to Vermont Center for Independent Living. They have no volunteers at all to help anyone who is disabled at this time (which I think is sad because there really should be people willing to donate their time to those who need it so I hope they get some volunteers). I am asking anyone who is willing to help me pack, clean and move my belongings to the new unit. I cannot do it myself and at this time I can hardly do anything as I have been in extreme exacerbation for more than a month now and it is not getting better even with treatment. I will need people to help me pack, people to help me clean (shampoo carpets, wash windows and walls, etc) during the transition week and will need people with strength and musc ...

Rehabilitative programs are a leap forward for those with disabilities, I was fortunate to be introduced to one before it was too late. The program I am a part of is called Volunteers of America, it caters to those with mental disabilities, those in poverty, and those who are veterans. Where I live is called an independent living facility and allows you to become readjusted to living on your own, provided you take your medication and participate in what the program has to offer. From where I was 4 years ago and on, it is like night and day as far as being functional. It is not just about stopping those with mental illnesses from acting crazy or keeping poor people off the street. It is about caring enough for people to see them do better than where they are at. Those who oppose such programs are less human to me.

Today is Ed Roberts Day: Ed Roberts (January 23, 1939-March 14, 1995) was the first student with severe disabilities to attend the University of California, Berkeley. He was a pioneering leader of the disability rights movement. Roberts contracted polio at the age of fourteen in 1953, spending eighteen months in hospitals and returning home paralyzed from the neck down. Determined to live with a positive personal sense of disability identity, his activism began when he returned to school and needed to fight to receive his high school diploma, continuing through his attendance at Berkeley where he paved the way for other students with severe disabilities, who joined him in his efforts to advocate for changes to their treatment and services. He became the head of the Berkeley Center for Independent Living (CIL), the first independent living service and advocacy program run by and for people with disabilities. In 1976 California Governor Jerry Brown appointed him Director of the California Department of Reha ...

REVOLUTION? A WORD THIS SOULLESS, VILE ABOMINATION OF A TORY ADMINSTRATION NEEDS TO HEAR AND HEAR WELL! BUT REVOLUTION? - Although it was not in one week, this vile cesspit of a Government have been defeated in our Appeal court three times. The first was their free for all "sugar plantation" slavery initiative Workfare; the second, was the bedroom tax for the disabled, the third was the Independent Living fund.. Too *** right, we need a revolution but not one which damages small business or one which is marred by violence. Whilst I myself also feel like tearing them apart with my own bear hands, I am also aware that when things blow, - (which I think is what they are hoping for by the way), - it is the innocent who will be the ones to get hurt, rather than the "slimeballs", "greaseballs" and the squalid obnoxious cretins who are behind all of this. The oppressor is the same type of vile narrow minded colonial "spiritual" force, which Gandhi resisted. It is based on nothing but the scourge of greed, resen ...

Love SOS: I’m in a relationship with a guy who really works hard and takes care of me. Lately he has been cheating on me with a high school girl. This girl is just too much Dj, she posts pictures of him on her profile and even tags him. I have lost all respect in my community and a lot of people say that i must leave him. I’m just worried that if i leave him i wont be able to live like i’m used to... he pays for everything. I don’t even want to raise the issue with him because he seems to be under a love spell from this girl... I don’t know what to do

Sue Jones Joint Committee on Human Rights: The Summary of the Report on Implementation of the Right of Disabled People to Independent Living.- "We think the Government has not properly understood what agreeing to the rules in the UN Convention means. The Minister for Disabled People told us that she thinks the UN Convention is ‘soft law’ which means that it does not need to be taken as seriously as other la...ws". Oh well done Esther McVey for that fundamental indifference to our human Rights. But that does explain a lot. We think the UN Convention is ‘hard’ law and the Government needs to take it as seriously as other human rights laws. The Government changed the Equality Act so that their obligations to include Disabled People in decision -making and consultation have gone. (I wrote about this in an article called "PIP and the Tory Monologue" - ) "The Government is meant to include disabled people in making sure people get their human rights. We are concerned that a part of the Law on treating p ...
