Care Responsibilities: Your Advocates4u consultant is your partner as you create a plan that meets your needs and stays within your IRIS budget. Your Advocates4u consultant can connect you to resources in your area and will be a great source of information for any questions you have about the IRIS program. In a self-directed program, like IRIS., you decide who provides your support and services and when they happen. You may have natural support from people in your life, or you may choose to purchase the support you need from an agency or someone that you hire directly. Your Advocates4u IRIS consultant will be there to talk through these decisions with you and will help you put a plan in place that reflects your choices.
