IOA Announces Inland Empire Community Living Solutions

Reconnection is a beautiful thing—whether it’s being reunited with loved ones, an old neighborhood that you used to call home, or a dream you’d long forgotten. For many aging adults in institutionalized care, such as hospitals and nursing homes, being able to reconnect with the life they once lived is empowering and meaningful. For aging adults and adults with disabilities living in Inland Empire, this will soon be a possibility.

For many aging adults in institutionalized care, such as hospitals and nursing homes, being able to reconnect with the life they once lived is empowering and meaningful. For aging adults and adults with disabilities living in Inland Empire, this will soon be a possibility.

Institute on Aging is proud to announce the launch of Inland Empire Community Living Solutions (IECLS), a truly life-changing program that aims to help aging adults and adults with disabilities transition out of institutionalized care settings and back into independent community living.

Inland Empire Community Living Solutions: Services and Supports

Situated between the counties of San Bernardino and Riverside, Inland Empire is a unique community that has long been in need of a community living support program due to its large population of aging adults. The IECLS will serve as such a program, making the lives of participants easier, safer, and more fulfilling.
IECLS will be available to Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) members throughout the area who are living in either long-term care facilities or acute short-term care settings and are willing and able to return to community living. The program will also be available to Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) members who are currently living in the community at risk for institutionalization.
Through a variety of support services, IECLS will work to increase the quality of life for program participants by providing them with Intensive Care Management Services along with linking participants to resources necessary to lead more independent lives.

A Team With Heart: Facilitating the Transition to Community Living

Connecting aging adults to meaningful supports can be a transformative experience, allowing aging community members to recapture their freedom and autonomy. One of the aspects of the program that IOA is most proud of is the team of caring individuals that is in place to serve the Inland Empire community. Trained in the field of social work, they are well-versed in many of the issues that aging adults face as they transition to independent living. Life transitions, like moving to a new home, can be challenging even if they are positive, and it takes a special group of people to facilitate that process with grace and empathy. By working from a foundation of understanding, compassion, and respect, IECLS will be able to engage program participants in a way that meets each person’s individual needs.
Ultimately, once IECLS participants are settled in their homes and equipped with the services and supports they need, they will be able to regain agency in their lives and reestablish independence. Whether that means spending more with their families, participating in community events, or pursuing a new passion, IECLS will help make sure that aging adults have what they need to live lives that are joyful, purposeful, and fulfilling to them. After all, it’s never too late to reconnect with what matters most.
At Institute on Aging, we provide older adults with the resources that they need to live healthy, safe, and independent lives. Contact us today for more information about Inland Empire Community Living Solutions.
