Consumer Directed Care
Consumer Directed Care (CDC) is a new way of providing care and support services for older Australians. It gives people who receive a Home Care Package more control over the types of care services they access and the delivery of those services, including who delivers the services and when.
The latest Increasing Choice in Home Care reforms took effect on February 27. Funding for a Home Care Package is now managed by the consumer, creating new opportunities for older people and their families to select the provider and services that best suit their needs.
All Home Care Packages in Australia are provided via the Consumer Directed Care model. The care program was first piloted in 2010-11 with great success, which led to the national implementation for all packages from July 1, 2015.
Just Better Care has been delivering Consumer Directed Care Home Care Packages for many years. With a broad range of support services, including social and lifestyle support options, our customers select a mix of services that best suit their lifestyle and what they value most.
