  • Hot Topics and Challenges

    As we all work on a day-to-day basis to enhance lives of people with disabilities in our communities, we may run into challenges or face questions about how to move forward. There are also "hot topics" in the disability community that come up as well... topics that we may have heard about but don't know enough about. 

    Share your hot topics and challenges in our discussion forum by responding to the discussion already started or by starting one of your own on this page. By sharing these, we can support each other and together find a path forward.

    I use workers for supportive home care but not personal care. Yes, we ran into the same thing that IRIS (ILIFE) is taking so long to process paperwork.
