Free Assistance Still Available During Open Enrollment
The South Dakota Senior Health Information and Insurance Education (SHIINE) program would like to remind all Medicare beneficiaries there is still time to receive free assistance during the Medicare open enrollment period.
Dakota at Home is a free information and referral service provided by the Department of Human Services, Division of Long Term Services and Supports. Dakota at Home provides objective information and options planning to help individuals, regardless of age, disability, or income, identify and access public and private services and supports in their local communities.
Shared living is an arrangement of services provided in the private home of a participant, or a family, in which care is provided to a participant. Shared Living is meant to provide a more person-centered approach to supporting a participant where the participant and the selected provider share a life. Anyone with the desire to help someone with an IDD live a quality life can apply to be a Shared Living provider through a Community Support Provider (CSP). The size of the home doesn't matter. This can include one roommate in an apartment or home or joining a family sharing their own house.
