How Does it Work?
Support Care Resources is a voluntary program for those approved to receive state-funded home care services. Your case manager, personal agent or services coordinator can make a referral on your behalf. You can also choose to make a self-referral.
Once approved, you’ll sit down with an Abilitree consultant to discuss your needs and goals. We’ll provide printed materials, training guides and resource sheets as well as personalized practice sessions (such as mock interviews) to build your communication skills.
What can I expect?
You’ll receive tools, customized support and a boost of positivity to create a successful working relationship with your home care or personal support employee.
