Consumer Directed Care

Home Care Packages are government funded aged care packages for people who live at home. The objectives of the Home Care Packages Program are:

• To assist people to remain living at home for as long as possible.
• Enable people to have choice and flexibility in the way support is provided to them.

Providers like Benetas will assist you to identify and organise services that support you to live in your own home as independently as possible. This is called Consumer Directed Care or CDC, and allows you choice and flexibility in the delivery of your Home Care Package.

At Benetas, Consumer Directed Care Home Care Packages will allow you to decide the level of involvement you would like to have in managing your own package. Click here to learn more about CDC at Benetas.
