About Direct Care

Direct Care is a leader in self-directed home care. We are one of the few agencies, in the State of New York, who provides all of the available self-directed service options for individuals interested in directing their own care.

When you need assistance at home, hiring a stranger through an agency can leave you afraid and uncomfortable in your own home. You may be faced with arrangements that are unappealing and services that are inadequate. Having to deal with an agency that can’t seem to provide the services you need can be discouraging. All you want is a sincere caregiver in your home who understands you and your needs. Having to rely on a stranger in your own home can be unpleasant and worrisome.

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) solves these problems. It empowers you to DIRECT and CHOOSE exactly who you want to CARE for you. We offer Direct Care, a program that guides you through the CDPAP process so that you can have the compassionate caregiver you want.

CDPAP allows you to live life on your own terms, safely and comfortably.

What is CDPAP?

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is a New York Department of Health program for Medicaid recipients. If you are a Medicaid recipient, and are in need of assistance in the home, this program gives you an alternative way to receive home care services.

CDPAP puts you in charge of your care. Rather than using an outside home health care agency, you can direct your own care. You do all the recruiting, hiring, training and scheduling.

Direct Care will guide you through the CDPAP process and we will support all of your choices and actions.

Say goodbye to impersonal care.
Say hello to compassionate care.

See for yourself how Direct Care can empower you to direct and choose exactly who you want to care for you.

Bringing Families & Friends Closer Than Ever Before

Life is precious and should be spent surrounded by people you love. When loved ones care for you, you can cherish the time together and create memories that last a lifetime. By enrolling in the CDPAP program, you can compensate your loved one for the time they spend caring for you. That provides security and ensures that they can afford to care for you in all the special days to come.
