Virtual town hall

The Boost has posted its share of self-direction workshops, including last week, which points to its daunting nature. Here’s another webinar, below, for those who want to learn about these services, obtained through the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).

Self-direction services allow for more choice in OPWDD-funded supports and services. It gives people a say (up to a point) in where they live, how they spend their days, how they stay healthy and active and more.

To be approved for self-direction, the individual must be eligible for OPWDD services, enrolled in the Home and Community Based (HCBS) Waiver, and participating in Care Management services through a Care Coordination Organization (CCO). Learn what this all means in the webinar below.
