Consumer Directed Care

Consumer Directed Care (CDC) Home Care Packages are government funded packages that will assist you to remain living in your home for as long as possible. They will provide you with the choice and flexibility in the way that your care and support is provided. With decades of experience in providing Home Care support, JewishCare offers flexible CDC Home Care Packages in-home care that take into account your individual lifestyle, cultural background and religious beliefs.

As everyone’s individual needs differ and can change over time, JewishCare’s services are designed to accommodate these changes.
