IRIS Consultant (Home Based role, No Weekends, No Holidays, No After Hours)
Do you want a career where you build lasting relationships with the people you partner with? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of people with long-term health care needs? Then TMG wants to hear from you!
We’re currently looking for someone with a social services or human services background to join our team. This is a remote position, where you will partner with people in your community who are enrolled in the Wisconsin IRIS Program and the TMG IRIS Consultant Agency. While your office will be home-based, you will have regularly scheduled visits with IRIS participants in their home and community.
As an IRIS Consultant (IC), you will build relationships with the people you partner with and help them navigate and get the most out of the Wisconsin IRIS program – a Medicaid long-term care option for older adults and people with disabilities. You can learn more about the IRIS program on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website here (https://dhs.wisconsin.gov/iris/index.htm) . Together, you will identify the long-term care goals of the people enrolled in IRIS, and find creative ways to achieve those goals.
ICs play an important role in helping people of various backgrounds and abilities live the lives that they choose. In fact, people constantly tell us how supportive our ICs are and what a positive impact our ICs have had on their lives! Successful candidates for this position will be compassionate, genuine, resourceful partners with an eye for high quality work, and who are excited to work side-by side with people enrolled in IRIS.
As an IC, you will connect people to the resources available in their community. You will also help them develop customized IRIS plans for achieving their goals related to employment, housing, health, safety, community membership, transportation, and lasting relationships. While you will have a routine for the work that you do, no two days are alike!
