At Consumer Direct Care Network Delaware, we value the abilities of each person and the strengths of their support network.  We believe self-involvement in the direction of one’s own care contributes to a more stable health condition and builds a healthier and happier community.
Family support services are an important part of maintaining a healthy and safe home. We coordinate with Community Navigators and the Division of Developmental Disabilities Services (DDDS) staff to ensure the payment of approved Respite Camp.

For your peace of mind we take care of your paperwork. As an Agency with Choice provider contracted with the DDDS we assist you in filling out the necessary enrollment paperwork. We facilitate a background check on prospective caregivers and assist you in enrolling that caregiver. We process your caregiver’s paycheck, withhold appropriate state and federal taxes, and provide workers’ compensation insurance for them. We make it possible for you to be the managing employer so your child remains independent in your home.

If you are interested in services through Consumer Direct Care Network, please contact your Columbus Community Navigator at: (we’ll get a phone #/email address). Consumer Direct must have a referral before we can start services.
