Members are supported throughout their journey by numerous Member Relations programs. Working alongside Care Management teams, Member Relations offers a Member and Family Advisory Council, connection to resources, and peer support to address barriers or concerns experienced by Members and their families.
“The Member and Family Forums at ACANY are informative, educational and relevant to the care of people with IDD. As a family member/caretaker, I found my attendance in the forums worthwhile, and the content has been helpful and beneficial.”
