Severely disabled adults' rights are being violated if CD choice is abolished

Severely disabled adults' rights are being violated if not allowed to select who directly cares for them!

Many families have multi-generations living under one roof.  We rely on our relatives; this may include parents, spouses, siblings & others who happen to live in one home to assist in our care.  Mental health, physical care & dignity are all at stake, and could possibly put some in a dangerous situation if this proposal of change to the CD waiver is allowed to go forward.

Do not allow the Consumer Direct Waiver to change for disabled adults, we are not children, and deserve the respect to have our voices heard as adults.
