Family Care and IRIS
Family Care and IRIS are publicly funded long-term care programs designed to keep individuals out of nursing homes or other institutions. These programs fund services to keep an individual independent in the community. A person must meet a target group in order to qualify. The target groups that Family Care and IRIS serve are adults with : developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, or the frail elderly. Once a target group is identified, there are two areas of eligibility: functional and financial. Individuals must be both financially and functionally eligible to receive these services. Contact the ADRC for more information about Family Care and IRIS.
