The State of Alabama Independent Living / Homebound Service ( SAIL ) provides specialized in-home education and counseling, attendant care, training and medical services to Alabamians with severe disabilities. The SAIL program has seven community-based offices located throughout the state to serve residents in all 67 counties.
SAIL ensures the consumer can live as independently as possible at home and in the community through these specialized programs:
Homebound Services provides a wide range of education and home-based services to assist people with severe disabilities in leading more independent lives.
Independent Living Support Services enhances and promotes independence in the home, community and workplace.
Through a special SAIL Medicaid Waiver, the program is able to maximize its resources and access additional programs and services for the individuals served by providing services in the participant’s home, leading to reductions in institutional placements.
SAIL provides targeted case management for the Technology Assisted Waiver for Adults (TAW), serving those eligible who are ventilator dependent or who have a tracheostomy and require private duty nursing services to remain in the home. SAIL TAW case managers perform assessments, initiate, monitor, and coordinate waiver services to those participants on the program.
Through the Alabama Community Transition (ACT) Waiver, SAIL works closely with staff and residents in long-term care facilities to aid in the transition for those appropriate to return to the community. Services are provided based on individual needs and are not an entitlement.
The State of Alabama Independent Living Service program, in conjunction with the State Independent Living Council, is currently working on the development of its new State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) that is due to the Rehabilitation Services Administration on July 1, 2013. The SPIL covers the period from Oct. 1, 2013 to Sept. 30, 2016.
SAIL is currently seeking information from persons with disabilities about any identified independent living needs throughout the state.
