COTA Australia ran a project branded ‘Home Care Today’ from 2013 to June 2017 and was funded by the then Department of Health and Ageing. Home Care Today helped consumers and providers of Home Care Packages understand and implement Consumer Directed Care. 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. You can access the project resources for PROVIDERS via the link below:
The Consumer Directed Care (CDC) section of Home Care Today for Providers explains what CDC is and how your organisation can support providers to provide good consumer engagement using the ‘Voice of Consumers – A Practical Guide’.
