MMSS can help you with your Home Care Package services if you as the consumer request your package provider to arrange this. This is called Consumer Directed Care where MMSS would be brokered to undertake the service for you. There are some benefits to this, particularly for Mid Murray and Mannum residents where, as a local provider, MMSS may be able to supply your services more efficiently leaving more funds available in your package to maximise supports.
Mid Murray Support Service Inc can assist you with your enquiry about either service. Call one of our friendly staff at MMSS on 08 859 2129 between 10 am and 4.00 pm Monday to Friday.
