The CDS program, is consumer-controlled. That means consumers, at NO COST to them, are trained on how to hire/employ care attendants who will assist them with functions of daily living such as; dressing, transferring, bathing/showering, grooming, toileting, meal prep, clean-up, medication assistance, common household chores, and essential (local) transportation. Consumers participating in CDS are responsible for identifying / interviewing and hiring care attendants, managing them, and setting the work schedules. Care attendants can also be a friend or family member, but may not be a spouse or anyone under the age of 18.
