Roles and Responsibilities:
As the primary decision-maker, the applicant/participant actively shapes goals and selects supports and individual service providers. The SC, in turn, ensures the appropriate implementation of the Service Plan (SP) and supports the participant in developing effective self-advocacy and problem-solving skills. Collaboratively, they work on creating and executing the SP aligned with the participant's goals.
The SC aids the applicant/participant in crafting the individualized SP, involving individuals chosen by the participant in the process. Post-approval, the SC assists the waiver participant in implementing and periodically reviewing the plan's effectiveness. Throughout their engagement, the SC encourages the waiver participant to enhance problem-solving abilities, take control of life situations, and achieve greater independence. Additionally, the SC guides the applicant/participant in completing the Plan of Protective Oversight (PPO) (refer to Appendix C - form C. 4).
