The Arc Connecticut Presents: Life Advocacy – Who will advocate for my loved one with intellectual & developmental disabilities (I/DD) when I am no longer able? Various Dates & Locations Jan. 23 – Mar. 4, 2020
January 16, 2020
Who will advocate for my loved one with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) when I am no longer able?
In response to these concerns The Arc Connecticut has been working with a group of families to establish an organization that would assist people with I/DD with (1) independent ad-vocacy for services and supports; (2) benefits education and management; (3) quality oversight when parents, siblings and caregivers are no longer able to be part of an individual’s support group. These services would be paid for by family resources in the absence of waiver or other Medicaid fund-ing.
At this point in the process and before we take further ac-tion, we would like to share what we have created with families and to get your feedback in several areas:
1) Would the array of services we have envisioned meet your family’s needs?
2) Are there other services you would like to see added to the array?
3) Would you purchase these services if they existed today?
We look forward to explaining our ideas and learning from you!
