Who We Are
How we Make a Difference
We believe that our elderly are entitled to quality care. This is a fundamental right, no matter who the person is, their cultural background, their circumstances, or where they live.
We aim to make a difference by supporting service providers to deliver quality care. Our resources and tools help you meet compliance. We seek to create solutions that embed efficiency and productivity into aged care service delivery.
Over a 20 year period, CDCS has specialised in supporting CALD, remote, rural and regional communities. When we create resources, we observe, consult, gather feedback, and tailor, so you and your team are happy with the result.
Essentially, we co-create.
