Service Details


Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) Support Planner (formerly known as Support Broker/Flexible Case Manager) can provide support planning services to help a person develop an individual support plan and budget for buying in-home services and/or supports.

These personalized supports help a person continue living at home and help avoid or delay out-of-home placement.

The CDCS Support Planner service is based upon a person-centered planning approach, where the support planner helps the person develop and implement a self-directed support plan to receive needed services and supports.

CDCS Support Planner services may include helping people:
* Select, employ, train, schedule, and monitor their workers
* Define worker responsibilities and tasks
* Evaluate and monitor results
* Create and modify their plan and budget
* Problem solve
* Coordinate service delivery

The person and/or family caregiver determines how much help they need from the CDCS Support Planner service.
