VIDEO: Introduction to Consumer Directed Care

The ‘Home Care Today’ project ran from 2013 to June 2017. COTA Australia continues to provide access to Home Care Today resources which were current at June 2017. However they are no longer monitored or updated, and information may not be current.

Introduction to Consumer Directed Care

A range of people including carers and people needing care, share how home care packages have changed their lives.

Getting a package meant for a carer that she was not alone any more and help was available to take off some of the burden she has been carrying in managing a family and being a carer.

Other people love the certainty the package has given them. Knowing who is coming and when they are coming is something they value greatly. Another aspect of a home care package people have valued is the flexibility the package has given them to tailor the services to their own needs.

Case studies and stories of people in similar situations like yourself can be a powerful resource to demonstrate how people have used home care packages to improve their life. We greatly appreciate the contribution made by people who have shared their experiences and we hope they will assist you in your decision making.
