Self-Directed Services puts you in charge of your care. You play a more active role in directing your daily care by choosing your direct care worker. You may already have a caregiver identified who meets your needs. Alamo Consumer Direct helps you become the managing employer of the caregivers you select. You recruit, hire and train them, while we take care of the hiring paperwork, payroll tax processing, and paying your caregiver.
Self-Directed Care Gives You Choice
Self-Directed Care Gives you Control
You become the managing employer and that gives you the authority to recruit, hire and train the caregiver(s) of your choice. Alamo Consumer Direct supports you in many ways including providing employer and employee training tools.
While you are the managing employer, Alamo Consumer Direct helps you by being the employer of record. That means we function as your fiscal intermediary. You approve your caregiver’s timesheets, and then we process their payroll and payroll tax deductions.
We can also help you understand the ins and outs of Texas’s policies and maintain compliance with the program.
Self-Directed Care Gives you Flexibility
Every day is different. Every person is different. Self-direction allows you to modify your day to fit your changing needs. We recognize that the path toward those goals will have a few turns. We are here to provide the fiscal intermediary support to assist with your caregiving management.
Self-Directed Care Gives you Independence
Independent living is a matter of pride for individuals living with a disability. A self-directed service model recognizes that you are the expert of your needs. You participate in every facet of your care from who you hire to when they are in your home. You set the time frame that makes getting to school, meetings or work, engaging in the demands of everyday life, manageable.
