Consumer Direct

Among the first in the state to offer self-directed personal care, Consumer Direct was established in Montana in 2000. The program is specifically intended to allow individuals with health care needs to remain in their homes and communities and to avoid placement in an institution.

This program is designed for individuals who are capable of directing their own personal care services or appointing a Personal Representative to act on their behalf.  Consumer Direct specializes in providing self-directed services, which enable service recipients and/or their representatives to exercise control and authority over their employees / caregivers who support and assist them and the ways in which that assistance is provided. Their staff is trained in and embraces the philosophy and practices of self-direction and the principles of person-centered planning. They are a recognized leader in self-direction and one of the few human service agencies in the country that provides all of the self-directed service options available to persons interested in directing their own care.
