Self Directed Services

OCCK, a Financial Management Services provider, is a not-for-profit Kansas corporation dedicated to helping people with physical or mental disabilities remove barriers to employment, independent living, and full participation in their communities.

Self-directed care allows people with disabilties or their designated representative to direct the service they receive.  The individual or individual’s representative is responsible for selecting, hiring, training, scheduling, and dismissing his or her presonal care providers and maintaining records.  OCCK, Inc., as a Financial Management Services provider, offers assistance as you navigate the services needed in your home.  Whether you need training to recruit workers, training on how to interview and schedule, emergency planning or knowing your rights, OCCK, Inc. staff can readily offer support tailored to your unique circumstances.
