"You'll Just Feel Better Knowing We Are There"

Consumer Directed Services in Southeast, MO

Consumer Directed Services (CDS) enables physically disabled individuals to continue to live independently within their own home rather than going to a nursing facility. CDS empowers the Consumer to remain in control of their lives by giving them the freedom to choose their own caregiver. The caregiver may be a friend or family member other than a spouse. This freedom of choice gives individuals peace of mind knowing that their personal care assistance and assistance with activities of daily living are being done by someone that they know and trust.

Our primary goal has been to keep patients/clients independent in their homes. VNA has 40 years of experience working with clients and their families to help them remain as independent as possible. In order to foster the consumer’s optimal level of independence within their home environment and community, the VNA will provide advocacy, independent living skills training, peer counseling, information and referral through our Consumer Directed Service program. Consumer Directed Services is a Medicaid funded program.
