What is Self Direction?
Self direction helps individuals living with a disability maintain their freedom and independence through home based services which they choose and manage themselves. Among the most popular forms of self direction is the ability to hire a family member or friend as a personal care aide rather than having a stranger in your home or being placed into institutional care. At the core of self direction is the belief that individuals receiving care know their needs better than anyone else and should be empowered to control any aspects of their care as they prefer.

Hire Loved Ones
Rather than a home care agency controlling the selection, training, and scheduling of an aide, self direction allows you to choose a family member or friend as your caregiver.
Nobody knows your unique needs better than you. Self direction empowers you to take control of how your care is provided to you.
