How do I hire long-term services for myself or a loved one?
With Self-Directed Services (SDS), you have the right to live the life you choose—right in your own home and community, no matter your age or ability.
Everyone’s situation is different. For some, SDS means the ability to receive services and support from a loved one. For others, it’s supporting parents so that they can care for children with disabilities. Or, it may simply be that as you get older you want to continue living where you choose and get care from someone you trust. No matter your situation, SDS helps you get the long-term care services that are right for you.
People choose SDS to manage their care for many reasons. GT Independence is here to support your decision. You make all the important choices—like who to hire and when to schedule your support. We take care of the details and are here to answer questions you may have.
