Self-Directed Care at MCFI
Self-directed care simply means that clients, or their representatives or guardians, have the authority to make decisions about the types of services they receive.
They also have decision-making authority on how those services are delivered - and who will deliver the services. Clients can hire, train and supervise those who care for them, and they have the ability to determine how funds they receive for supportive services are spent.
Self-direction promotes personal choice and control and it is a model of care that MCFI embraces.
In all of our programs, from LIFE Services to Employment Services and Nexday (our brain injury recovery program), clients of MCFI and its affiliates guide the decisions that will lead them to greater independence.
