For the Elderly and Persons With Disabilities (EPD)
The Services My Way program supports adults with disabilities (age 18+) and people over the age of 65. It helps you live a more independent life. Instead of going to a nursing home, you can stay in your own home and community. All while getting the support you need to live your life and reach your goals. You can also decide who to hire to help you. This includes family members (excluding spouses).
The goal of Services My Way is to help people increase their independence. All so they can live the life they choose for themselves.
Participant-Directed Community Supports
This service means that the participant or their representative is the employer of their participant directed worker (PDW).
Individual Directed Goods and Services
This includes services, equipment, or supplies that aren’t provided by the EPD Waiver or state plan. To purchase goods and services, everything purchased must meet a clear need in the particpant’s person-centered plan (PCP).
At GT Independence, we believe you should be able to experience life on your own terms. As a family-owned and disability-led financial management service (FMS) and support broker, we help you manage your services. In the Services My Way program, you control your care. We take care of the details. This includes all the paperwork, like taxes and payments to your workers. We also handle all background screenings for your workers. Our goal is to give you the support you need to self-direct your own care.
As your advocates, we’re here to help you live the life you choose. We do this by:
In Services My Way, you get additional support on top of the normal FMS services. Self-directing your own care means that you’re a boss with workers (your caregivers) under you. This means there’s some training that comes with the job. You’ll also need to create a budget, set goals, and monitor your spending. As your support broker, GT is here to help every step of the way.
