Controlling My Own Life: Making the most of Consumer Directed Care
Consumer Directed Care gives individual consumers more control over the kind of assistance they receive with basic living tasks in their homes.
This workshop is designed to inform older people, friends, families, carers and community members about recent changes. Learn more about the way you can access service and support in your home. Receive information about the choices you can make to get the most out of the Consumer Directed Care Package you receive.
Older people have managed their own lives for a lifetime and want to continue to do this. Recent aged care reforms recognise this. Under consumer direction the people getting the service take the decision on what mix of assistance and supports best fit their way of living.
Even if you’re years away from accessing a Consumer Directed Care Package yourself, you are welcome to attend. You will be able to tell friends and family about the benefits of this new approach to home care. Carers are also welcome to attend these sessions.
