Whether you’re 18 or 98, a senior adult or a person with a disability or chronic condition, we know how precious your independence is to you. We know what a challenge maintaining independence can be. And we know the support you need.
When you join ICS, you have that support—home care, health care, and social services. You have a Care System. You become a valued member of the ICS community. And you don’t have to go it alone.
Independence Care System is dedicated to supporting adults with physical disabilities and chronic conditions to live at home and participate fully in community life.
ICS operates a nonprofit Medicaid managed long-term care plan serving Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens.
