What is self-management?

Self-management is a concept that puts you in charge of your care. It means having the freedom to make decisions about your support workers, the services you receive, and how your approved Home Care Package Funding is utilised. 

In a self-management model, you become the central figure in your care journey. You have the flexibility to hire and manage your support workers, giving you the ability to select individuals who align with your personality and care requirements. This personalised approach puts you at the forefront of decision-making, ensuring that your care is truly centred around you as a unique and valued person. While self-managing you will still have access to a dedicated Care Manager who will work with you to develop a customised Care Plan that will cover what you would like to spend your package funds on.
