Your I Care Guide

If you are 16 or older and are in the custody of Hamilton County Job and Family Services, then you may have received an I Care Guide through one of the people on your support team (ex. your doctor, social worker, independent living specialist). The I Care Guide is your go-to source for a summary of your personal health information. With an up-to-date guide, you can easily find your medications, shot records, and important medical contact information. Tools like the STI Symptoms Checklist and Healthcare Access Decision Aid are also included in the guide to help you be in control of your healthcare.

The video above demonstrates how and when to use the I Care Guide. For additional information on the I Care Guide, please visit the CHECK Center page

NOTE: At this time I Care Guides are not available for purchase or distribution outside of Hamilton County. If you previously received a guide and have misplaced it, please contact the CHECK Center.
