DRM Announces Supported Decision-Making Workshops for people who receive Developmental Services, their family members, case managers, and providers

Disability Rights Maine is offering a statewide series of workshops on Supported Decision-Making and the recent changes to Maine’s Probate Code.

Supported Decision-Making (SDM), an alternative to guardianship, allows people with disabilities to retain their decision-making capacity by choosing supports to help them make choices.

This training will provide information about SDM and how it and other less restrictive alternatives to adult guardianship are incorporated into the new Probate Code, which goes into effect in July 2019.

Training dates and locations are listed below. All trainings will take place from 10am-12pm. To register online, please visit the Office of Aging and Disability Services website at: https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/setu/oads-sponsored-training.shtml. Please email any questions to Nell Brimmer at knbrimmer@drme.org. We look forward to seeing you!
