How do I know if I am eligible for SDPC?
If you require hands-on assistance with your activities of daily living due to limitations, you may be eligible to receive personal care services. If you are already receiving service through a MAPC Agency you already qualify. Contact your IRIS Consultant for help in seeing if this program meets your needs.
What are the benefits of SDPC?
- You will be able to hire, supervise and manage your personal care workers in the same ways you currently manage your IRIS supportive home care or respite workers.
- You will have flexibility to coordinate personal care with supportive home care, transportation and other services.
- You may use your IRIS SDPC in community settings outside the home.
- You may hire family members, including a spouse, to provide personal care.
How do I get IRIS SDPC services?
Your IRIS Consultant can review personal care options with you and if you are eligible, will refer you for follow-up with an SDPC RN. Once the SDPC RN learns more about your needs and develops a plan, you can have SDPC hours added to your plan. People enrolled in any certified IRIS Consultant Agency can access Self Directed Personal Care.
