This allows consumers tmaintain greater control over their lives by allowing them tmake choices about the services they receive and whdelivers those services. Consumers are encouraged tactively participate in identifying and setting goals, and tdetermine what level of involvement they want in managing their own living arrangements.
Under this model of care, the funding associated with of the Registered Nurse Home Care Package Program is controlled by consumers, rather than by the health provider. This means that consumers have an active role in determining the shifts that are available, the duties that are performed, the frequency of demand for the service, and the choice of provider organisation.
