Family and Friends
Direct care workers and other service providers provide critical supports and services to help people with disabilities and older adults with long-term care needs stay in their homes and out of costly nursing homes.
SAVE IRIS was started by a group of IRIS participants and their allies. Participants are constituents! Your voice matters the most to legislators. Please stay in touch with your legislators and tell your story. Ask them about their positions regarding long-term care.
Legislators need to hear from family members of IRIS participants about how IRIS has helped their loved one develop an individualized plan that meets their needs through paid and unpaid supports. Contact your legislators today to share your story and to remind them how important it is for people using long-term care to hire the people they trust the most to assist them.
