ILCS

Independent Living Community Services Inc. (ILCS) is a non-profit organization committed to providing supportive services that promote independence to the elderly in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Established in 2003, the organization leverages Independent Living Systems’ (ILS) unique aging programs that serve the frail, ill and/or underprivileged members of the community.

ILCS provides health and social services support to the residents and surrounding community members of the Ward Tower Senior Housing Facility, located in Miami, Florida. ILCS provides an array of services to the more than 500 members of the Ward Tower Senior Center who live on the housing campus or in the surrounding community. Services are provided in coordination with the local Area Agency on Aging.

ILCS has also integrated a strong health promotion and disease prevention component to its service offering at Ward Tower including the implementation of evidence-based, bilingual programs focused on chronic disease self-management. The goal is to implement diabetes-specific management programs, facilitated by registered dietitians, in response to the high prevalence of diabetes in the community.
