Consumer Directed Services
Consumer Directed Services (CDS) is a Missouri Medicaid-based program that enables consumers to recruit, hire, and direct their own home care workers. One of the highlights of the program is that it allows consumers to hire family members and friends. This program will provide compensation to the loved one who is caring for the consumer as long as that loved one is not a spouse.

With their help, I am able to care for my uncle and still earn income. The staff was very helpful getting everything setup .”
I am so grateful to have service with 1st Advanced Care! I did not have anyone nearby to care for me , so they sent me a PCA and she is such a sweetheart. She comes out to my house a few times a week and this is wonderful. Thank you!
I want to say how much my mother and I appreciate your agency responding to our needs so quickly. Your agency was very easy to work with and made the transition of my cousin taking over caring for my mother in my absence much easier to deal with.
