Below are organizations with whom HomeCare for Living Well (HCLW) works very closely:

Live Well Allies consist of agencies and businesses that have incorporated the Living Well Philosophy into their day-to-day operations and have shared vision with the CILCP.
A new Managed Care Model, called Community Health Choices has begun rolling out across the state of Pennsylvania. Under this new model, services will be administered by one of three Managed Care Organizations (MCOs). This will affect people with disabilities who are on waivers, and individuals who are on Medicare and Medical Assistance.
The Center for Independent Living of Central Pennsylvania is dedicated to assisting our consumers through this transition. We’ve developed a website to communicate the transition to our consumers and stakeholders. Please follow this link to livingwellwithadisability.org for more information on the Managed Care transition.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below are the answers to some frequently asked questions regarding HomeCare for Living Well:
- I already receive care from a family member, can your organization hire them as an attendant so they can begin earning money for the care they provide?
- Yes! They can complete an application to become an attendant, or contact our office, and we can work to determine if they are eligible. If their application is approved, we will train them and they can begin working as an attendant—both for yourself and for others, if they desire!
- I don’t have any family members who can provide care to me, can you still provide me with an attendant?
- Of course! If you do not have a family member or friend who you’d like to use as an attendant, we will pair you with one of our other attendants, based on your preferences, and allow you to meet him/her prior to their first day on the job. If you’re not happy, let us know—we’ll pair you with someone new.
- Are consumers allowed to use the courtesy vehicle?
- No, unfortunately only attendants are authorized to drive the HCLW courtesy vehicle.
