Living Our Visions (LOV) and Arc-Dane County are happy to co-host a series of learning opportunities to ensure individuals with disabilities and families have access to clear and factual information about Family Care/IRIS so they can best navigate the system change. To do so, events will provide basic overviews of Family Care/IRIS programs and comparisons between structures, processes and outcomes of Family Care/IRIS and the current Dane County System. The goal of these events is family education not system advocacy.

Session 1: What happens to my broker?

Understanding Case Management and Coordination in Family Care/IRIS

RSVP to marissa@lovdane.org 

Questions generated by families include: 

  • What will happen to support brokers and agencies?
  • Who coordinates supported living, vocational and other supports in Family Care/IRIS?
  • Will we be able to work with a real person or just get an answering machine?
  • Who is on a care management team? Do I have to have a nurse?
  • Can I choose my care manager or IRIS consultant?
  • Who will have ongoing and personal relationship with me like my broker does now?
  • Who can advocate if the person doesn’t have a family member or friend to assist?

**Please note that this event is at a different time (7-9pm) and different location (Madison Christian Community) than our previous FC/IRIS Learning event.**
