Take Control of Your Care Consumer Directed Services

Consumer Directed Services (CDS)

What is Consumer Directed Services? CDS offers you the opportunity to direct your own attendant care. You become the employer and are responsible for recruiting, training, managing and firing your attendants. 


We help you make the most of this program by offering training and administrative support so you can stay in your home and maintain control of your care. We assist you by:

  • Training you to hire and supervise attendants

  • Performing background checks on attendants

  • Processing payroll and billing

  • Helping complete paperwork

  • Assisting with problems that may arise. 


We support the CDS option in the St. Louis metropolitan area and Randollph County, MO.

A CDS program participant must:
  • Be eligible for MO HealthNet (Medicaid).

  • Be 18 years of age or older.

  • Be able to direct his or her own care.

  • Be physically disabled.

  • Be capable of living independently with the services of a personal care attendant.

  • Require at least a nursing facility level of care.
