Self-management in Home Care

Self-management in Home Care

COTA Australia’s ‘Self-management in Home Care’ project was a ground-breaking initiative funded by the Australian Government from 2017 to its conclusion in September 2019. The COTA Australia website hosts numerous resources  freely available to both providers and consumers to help build a greater understanding and practical knowledge about self-management in home care.

This page has been created to help providers and consumers understand ‘self-management’ in the context of home care packages in Australia.

Here you will find information and resources to help you understand and implement self-management. Our toolkits are divided into CONSUMER resources and PROVIDER resources:

  • CONSUMER: Guide to Self-management
  • CONSUMER: Self-management Toolkit
  • PROVIDER: Implementation Guide
  • PROVIDER: Developing Your Self-management Agreement

The Provider & Consumer Guides and Toolkits are the major resources developed through the project, they are available to download from the ‘Self-management Resources and Tools’ page.

This short video helps to explain a bit about self-management in home care and the COTA Australia model of self-management.
