Are Consumer Directed Services right for you?

  1. Would you like to select your own attendants?
  2. Would you like to be in control of what tasks your attendant performs?
  3. Would you like to have more control of your attendant’s schedule?

If you answer “yes” to these questions, you should consider Consumer Directed Services. Consumer Directed Services offer the individual the choice and control over the type of services and when, where and by whom services are delivered.
