Self-Directed Supports

With iCare Family Care Partnership, you have the option to self-direct your long-term care services.

You may self-direct some or most of your long-term care services. Your care team will help you decide what’s best for you. Some common services that people choose to self-direct include:

  • Bathing and personal care
  • Housekeeping
  • Job coaching
  • Laundry
  • Meal preparation
  • Transportation


You’re in control

Choosing to self-direct means you make choices about how and from whom you receive long-term care services.

If you choose, you may hire friends or family to provide services. Who better to provide support than people you already know and trust?

You take the lead in managing your care and having control over your resources, including taking control of decisions such as payment amounts and scheduling hours for services. Your care team is here to help you develop a plan that works for you.
