Consumer-Directed Attendant Services

Consumer-Directed Attendant Services Overview 

The Consumer-Directed Attendant Services program helps people with disabilities live in their own homes and communities. This means that you can choose when and how you get help—with everyday activities and with staying healthy. If you are eligible, you will get a plan for your care. And, you will be able to choose who provides that care. With Consumer-Directed Attendant Services, you can live more independently. But before you can join the program, you must learn if you are eligible.
