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.
The Southeastern Minnesota Center for Independent Living (SEMCIL) believes that people with disabilities of all ages (including older adults) have the right to equal opportunity, access and choice and the same freedom for self-direction in everyday life as other members of their communities.
