Your Guide to New Choices in Home Care
The ‘Your Guide to New Choices in Home Care’ booklet provides a guide for people who want help to remain living at home and the people who support them in this goal. It aims to give people an idea of how home care packages work when they are provided using the Consumer Directed Care (CDC) approach. All Commonwealth funded home care packages will be delivered using the CDC approach from July 2015. Until then, some home care packages will be delivered using the CDC approach and some will be delivered using the traditional approach to home care.
