What does the member need to Take Control?

  • Be eligible for Personal Assistant Services.
  • Make available a phone that is registered to the member/employer or designated representative so assistants can call in/out to track their hours worked.
  • Be a “Self-Directing” person - that is, be able to understand the decisions about their medical needs and implement them. If a member doesn’t believe they can be self-directing, you and/or the member can designate someone who is.
