WLIL-ing to Assist

About Us

The Independent living philosophy, is 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.

Independent Living Philosophy is having control of one's own life, having opportunities to make decisions that affect one's life and being able to pursue activities of one's own choosing, regardless of disability.

Limerick CIL is one of the largest providers of Personal Assistant Services to people with disabilities across Limerick. We has been delivering high quality Personal Assistant (PA) services to individuals in their own homes, tailored to their personal needs for over a decade now.

A PA service is a service for persons with significant disability who need assistance in aspects of daily living, personal care at home, domestic support, travelling or socially.

After assessment the identified need of an individual determines the level of service required (i.e. number of hours and how many PA's required) to enable an individual to achieve independent living.

We have a team of over 100 personal assistants who are managed and supported by a team of service coordinators, all of whom are qualified and have a wealth of experience in support service delivery. As a leading service provider, our staff work closely with you to ensure person centred care is delivered to you in your home.

Each community care area has a dedicated Client Service Coordinator with a direct landline number. Also we operate an out-of-hours emergency phone system, should an emergency arise with our service.

 

West Limerick Independent Living has recently achieved the Trusted Charity Mark award recognising the excellent work it does as a third sector organisation in Ireland. www.ncvo.org.uk

Our Services

Personal Assistant (PA) Service

A PA service is a service for individuals with a significant disability who need assistance in aspects of daily living, at home, travelling, at work, college or socially. A PA is someone who provides assistance to an individual with a disability to help them in all aspects of daily life from personal care, household domestic tasks, driving and interpretation etc. The role of the PA is to assist the service user to make their own decisions and be in control of their own life. To be eligible for these services the applicant must have a primary disability that is either physical or sensory in nature. The service is available to adults over 18 years of age and under 65 years of age.

Assessment & Getting Started

How can I apply for this service? There is a standard application form which must be completed and is available from your local PHN or OT. If you meet the service criteria, the HSE will refer your application to a service provider e.g. Limerick CIL, IWA etc. for assessment. On receipt of your application one of our service coordinators will contact you to discuss your needs with you and will then arrange to visit you at your home to carry out your home care assessment and conduct a health and safety risk assessment. The assessment will ascertain your needs (required level of assistance) with regard to your bathing /toileting / feeding/ dressing/ prompting medication and mobility needs etc. Each persons service is individualised and agreed in partnership with them. The identified need of an individual determines the level of service required (i.e. number of hours and how many PA's required) to enable an individual to achieve independent living.
