The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program provides many benefits, such as:

  • Enabling self-directing people, who are receiving home care services under the Medical Assistance Program, greater flexibility and freedom of choice over their services.
  • Allowing people to become active participants in the development of their own plan of care.
  • Giving people the responsibility for coordination and management of their own services by allowing them to interview, hire, train, supervise and schedule their own employees.
  • Giving people responsibility for coordinating any other service that they may need.
