The Arc of Arizona’s Care Management & Independent Living Supports program (CAMILS) does for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities what wheelchair ramps, elevators and similar accommodations do for those with physical disabilities. A critical resource for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities who live independently and receive little-to-no government support, CAMILS services seek to “fill in the gaps,” so to speak, making day-to-day life less stressful and more accessible for the thousands of Arizonans living with I/DD.

Because each person with I/DD has unique needs, we do not employ a simple, one-size-fits-all approach to accommodating them. Instead, CAMILS staff members cater to individuals based on their specific needs, assisting with any number of efforts that might include:

  • Health care monitoring assistance, including appointment and medication management and communication with providers
  • Evaluation of living conditions
  • Habilitation skills development
  • Personal care and hygiene assistance
  • Meal preparation and nutrition counseling
  • Support at social, community or recreational activities
  • Financial management assistance, including budgeting, expense planning, record-keeping, tax return filings
  • Future planning assistance
  • Home maintenance reviews and scheduling
  • Access to visual or other aids for the home
  • Assistance relating to Medicaid, Medicare or other forms of coverage for physical and behavioral health
  • Eligibility for/continuation of services and supports provided through the Arizona Department of Economic Security – Division of Developmental Disabilities
  • Employment training, placement, coaching and supports

Available on a fee-for-service basis (an hourly rate, plus mileage and expenses), CAMILS services offer today’s individuals living with I/DD and their families an affordable, empowering alternative to partnering with expensive private companies. If you or someone you love could benefit from assistance in any of the areas above, please contact The Arc of Arizona at (602) 234-2721 or [email protected] to schedule a no-cost, no-obligation consultation.
