Who may need Services Coordination?

Services coordination is most commonly used by people receiving home and community based services. You may need Services Coordination if:

  • You need help finding services to be provided in your home.
  • You want to live as independently as possible.
  • You are an individual with disabilities or medical conditions, or the family of a child with special health care needs.

Services Coordination means that you will start out with a Services Coordinator who will help:

  • Find services to meet your needs.
  • Link you with needed services.
  • Work with multiple providers to make sure services are provided to you as needed.
  • Support you to become a coordinator of your own services in the future.

What can a Services Coordinator do for me?

You may find it difficult to locate needed services and schedule your service providers. Services Coordinators can help:

  • See if you are eligible for services.
  • Assess your needs.
  • Develop a plan of services and supports based on your assessed needs.
  • Develop services to meet your needs.
  • Connect you with needed services in the community.

Services Coordinators are:

  • Participant-centered, meaning they help individuals have choices in how to live and where to live.
  • Family-centered, meaning they partner with families to meet their needs revolving around a family member with disabilities.

What if I want to coordinate my own services?

You have the right and responsibility to plan and direct your own services to the greatest extent possible.
