Empowering Adults Through Supported Decision Making
The Role of Families, Guardians, Caregivers, and Others in Supporting Individuals Receiving HCBS
Webinar on Thursday, March 19 at 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm ET
This training is the next in a monthly webinar series hosted by ACL and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and will specifically address delineating between the preferences of individuals receiving HCBS and those of families/guardians. Promising practices in building caregiver networks and coalitions across public-private partnerships will also be discussed. Webinar attendees will hear from the ABA Commission on Law and Aging discussing their report on supported-decision making for individuals across the age spectrum. The Arc will share experiences of that of a policy and advocacy organization, and a provider of services to people with disabilities when there are support-decision making considerations involved. In addition, The Center for Public Representation will focus on the HCBS settings rule in the supported-decision making context.
