CDS is a program that allows a family member or a friend to provide personal care services to an individual who is able to self direct care. This individual is known as the consumer. The consumer is responsible for hiring their own personal care attendant. Work schedules, training, and management of their attendant all falls at the hands of the consumer. The attendant must be 18 years or older, not a spouse, and must have a clean background that passes through the Missouri State Family Care Safety Registry before being employed by the CDS consumer.
Safe Hands will provide training to the consumer to help give proper training to the personal care attendant if needed. Also, Safe Hands will ensure consumers have back up staffing and all tax and service documentations required to meet Medicaid and IRS guidelines are completed.
In addition, some consumers may be eligible to receive basic respite service provided by an IN HOME personal care attendant. A family member or friend cannot provide respite service.
