Service coordinators are an integral part of residential communities that house families, elders and persons with disabilities. SCs link residents with supportive services allowing them to maintain self-sufficiency in their homes. It is most important that the SC understand the characteristics of the resident population and property in which they serve and the issues that may impact the differential use of services are socio-economic, age, culture, gender, race, sexual orientation, and others. This webinar will define ethical standards and offer guidelines and principles to guide decision making and conduct when ethical issues arise.
