ILS was one of three companies chosen by Alliance for Aging to provide services in Miami-Dade and the only one in Monroe County.
“We are thrilled to have been selected as the lead agency for the Alliance for Aging. This partnership represents a significant opportunity to positively impact the lives of our most vulnerable residents and their families,” said Nestor Plana, CEO and Chairman of Independent Living Systems, which has been helping provide services to seniors and persons with disabilities for over 20 years. “The Alliance for Aging does critical work for the aging population in our state, and we are happy to be able to use our experience and wide-ranging service offerings to assist them.”
Incorporated in 1988, the Alliance for Aging, Inc., was designated by the State of Florida as the Area Agency on Aging for Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. The goal of the agency is to help people stay at home in the community and avoid placement in nursing homes.
A major function of the Alliance is to provide information about available services for older adults, caregivers, and persons with disabilities and how to obtain these services. Any person aged 60 or older is eligible for services from the Alliance. Some of the services have additional requirements for eligibility such as income, dementia, or frailty. Caregivers of any age who are caring for an older person may also be eligible for services.
