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.
Hiring a stranger through a home care agency can leave you afraid and uncomfortable. 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.
Tell a Direct Care advisor about your needs and desired schedule online or over the phone.
Who better to care for you than the ones that you love and trust the most? Let us know who you would like to hire as your personal assistant.
Now that we know what your personal needs are and who your personal assistant will be, Direct Care offer end-to- end support in the enrollment process.
