2-1-1 Northeast Region
Description of Service
Provides those who are chronically ill or who have physical disabilities the freedom and flexibility to hire, train, and supervise their caregivers so they can remain at home, participate in the communities where they live, and avoid a nursing home or group home placement. The consumer recruits, interviews, hires, trains, and dismisses their own staff. Coordinators can provide some assistance and advice on how to maintain a good supervisor-worker relationship.
