GT Independence

Live Life On Your Terms

Self-directed care means you decide who supports your long-term care and how those services are delivered.

No matter what you call it, it’s all about choice.

Self-direction has many different names, but they all mean the same thing: you choose who provides your long-term care and how you’d like to receive it. GT Independence is here to help you live the life you choose. We’ll help you get set up to hire in-home or community-based caregivers and then take care of the taxes and paperwork for you.

    Get your long-term care for the same or lower cost as compared to other choices you may have.

  • Simplify the Details

    Decide how you want to receive your long-term care, so that you get the support that is most important to you.

  • Keep Your Lifestyle

    Stay in your comfortable and familiar surroundings. And keep enjoying the friendships and activities that bring you joy.
