Discover How Self-Direction Gives You the Power of Choice

You can live the life you choose, and that is powerful.

Read our tips for getting started, and explore tools and information to help you understand your choices better.

With self-direction, you decide who provides your care and support. You decide when, how, and where you receive it.

Self-direction also means that you are responsible for taking care of the details that come with arranging your care and support. That fact can make people nervous or worried about making a mistake. But they shouldn’t be. GT Independence is here to help every step of the way.
