CDS Employment Opportunities
Individuals with disabilities who access Consumer-Directed attendant Services may be recruiting attendants in your area!
CDS is a consumer-directed approach to attendant services. The program allows an adult (18 and older) eligible for nursing home care to retain the services of a personal attendant, and actually direct his or her care. Services are paid for by state and federal funds through MO HealthNet (formerly known as Medicaid).
The individual consumer receiving services is both the employer and the supervisor. S/he conducts interviews and determines who s/he will hire. Tasks to be completed are identified on Plan of Care and may include:
- personal care (bathing, toileting), housekeeping, laundry,
- meal preparation, shopping and other needs as identified.
Each consumer hires his/her attendant and specifies how and when services will be provided. Consumer sets wages from $7.85 - $10.25 per hour.
Standards established by Missouri require that attendants be at least 18 years of age and pass a background check through Missouri Family Care Safety Registry. As the supervisor/employer, the consumer may have additional requirements (such as a valid driver’s license or willingness to work nights or weekends).
If interested in applying, please call 636-926-8761 ext. 243.
