Independent Living Services for Adults with Disabilities in San Diego:

Finding housing arrangements that support the needs of people with disabilities can often be a challenge. Our residential programs at Xcite Steps help facilitate the housing arrangements for adults with disabilities in San Diego and the greater San Diego County. We provide custom-built programs ranging from 24/7 wrap around support programs, live-in roommate programs, independent living programs (funded by the Regional Center), and other custom variations.

We currently support several individuals in San Diego, who need assistance and support as they transition into a healthy home of their own.  Our incredible staff are positive peer role models, who provide structure, guidance, comfort, and safety within a client’s home space.

We are pleased to announce that we are now a Regional Center provider for Independent Living Services (ILS) in San Diego!

If you or your loved one are a Regional Center consumer, and you live (or soon plan to live) on your own, you may be eligible to receive ILS services through Xcite Steps Adult.

Our ILS Coaches provide in-home support to help you or your loved one better organize your living space, your daily routines, and your overall health and well being.

Your Regional Center Service Coordinate can authorize services that are fully funded by the Regional Center. Contact your service coordinator and Xcite Steps Adult to learn more information.

What are Independent Living Services (ILS)?

Independent Living Services are programs that are designed to assist adults with developmental disabilities as they transition into greater health and independence, while living on their own.  ILS service agencies provide in-home coaches that teach systems to clients to better organize their homes, community interactions, and their daily lives. Coaches teach a variety of skills, including meal planning, home cleaning and organization, self-advocacy training, and safety skills, among others.  

What's the Xcite Steps Approach to ILS?

The Xcite ILS program is designed to provide proactive life skills coaching for active, health-conscious, and sustainable daily living. Our comprehensive curriculum provides a holistic approach to ILS services that enables clients to live happy, healthy, and productive lives, both at home and in the community.

We develop personalized service plans to assist each client with their own unique path to personal development. Through the Xcite ILS program, consumers are coached on maintaining a safe, clean, and organized living space - the foundation to an active, outgoing, and healthy lifestyle.

Who is Eligible for ILS Services?

Adults that currently live, or who are planning to live, on their own, out in the community. They may live with roommates, in supported living, or own their own. Xcite Steps is a Regional Center service provider for ILS services. Regional Center consumers may qualify for funding for an ILS program. Consumers who are not Regional Center clients may also inquire with Xcite, as we build personalized programs for anyone who is in need.

How Can I Get Enrolled in this Program?

Let's get in touch. You may call or inquire at Xcite Steps, or complete an online inquiry. You can also call Drew Jeglinski, the Xcite Steps Adult program director, at 858-353-5595.

Also, you must call your Regional Center Service Coordinator to arrange approval for this program. Your Service Coordinator should contact Xcite to verify the client's name, needs, and Regional Center consumer number.

Once your Service Coodinator approves the program through Xcite Steps, we can begin the intake assessment and start building the program, according to needs of the client.

Alternate and Extended Independent and Supported Living Programs:

Besides our Regional Center-funded ILS program, we also offer private ILS service programs for those that need extra support or supplemental services.  These extensions and services are available to individuals who are are seeking one-on-one service beyond the allotted hours granted by the Regional Center, or for those individuals who are not Regional Center consumers.

Our private/extended independent living programs are tailored to each family's’ needs, value system, and lifestyle.

These independent living programs may include, but are not limited to: a live-in roommate, a full-time support provider, and/or a part time support provider or “coach”. Our trusted team works together under the supervision of the program director, who oversees the quality of care. With the help of Xcite Steps, the family is able to choose the supports that are most appropriate for the individual.

We also provide consulting for families and individuals who need to outline their future visions and goals and develop strategies for moving forward in their lives. . (Learn more about the Positive Future Planning Meeting)
