  • Consumer Directed Services (CDS)

    Midland Empire Resources for Independent Living, Inc.
    Job Description
    In the Consumer Directed Services (CDS) program, people with disabilities hire caregivers to help them with personal care tasks, such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, and bathing. The CDS participant may hire someone they know- such as a friend or relative- to be their attendant, or they can choose an attendant from a list of caregivers who are looking for employment. MERIL keeps an updated list of caregivers that participants can choose from. If you are interested in being added to this list, please fill out an application in our offie. CDS participants are looking to hire attendants in all nice counties in Northwest Missouri.

    Caregivers make a big difference in the lives of people with disabilities, making it possible for them to live independently in their homes and communities. By working for a MERIL participant, caregivers also support the other nonprofit Independent Living services MERIL provides! If you are reponsible and have a passion for helping people with disabilities, fill out an application in our office for one or both of these caregiver positions.
