Self-Directed Support and Determination

Determination – Is what gets you started.

Motivation – Is what keeps you going.

The IRIS (Include, Respect, I Self-Direct) program was established through the self-determination concept.

This concept allows individuals to live independently by following these five core values of self determination: Freedom, Authority, Support, Responsibility and Confirmation. These five core principles are utilized to assist in maximizing the participant’s wise choices regarding their individualized needs. Advocates4U will assist participants in utilizing the combination of natural supports and paid services to meet their long-term care needs and personal goals within the authorized budget.
