ACL Grantee Seeks Supported Decision-Making Resources

September 3, 2015

Call for Submissions: Supported Decision-Making Tools and Best Practices

The National Resource Center for Supported Decision Making, operated by Quality Trust, an ACL grantee, is expanding its library of supported decision-making resources. Supported decision-making empowers older adults and people with disabilities by ensuring that they are the ultimate decision-makers in their  lives. In addition, the model is flexible enough to allow people to receive support from others in some areas of their lives, while still maintaining overall self-determination and control.
Supported decision-making tools can include durable powers-of-attorney, advance directives, health care proxies, representative payee regimes, direct bank deposit systems, and peer support programs. Please submit materials toShirley Bondon, Quality Trust’s Health and Aging Policy Fellow.
