What is the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program?

Under New York’s CDPAP program, patients can self-direct their home health care and choose a caregiver that they know and trust. Instead of the discomfort of a hired stranger, you can be appointed and paid to give your loved one the care he/she needs.

What Duties Can a Caregiver Perform?

Needs met by the CDPAP program include assistance in feeding, dressing, housecleaning, personal hygiene, basic medical needs, transportation to and from medical appointments, and any other task with which the patient directs his/her aide to help him/her with. A caregiver may also assist with medical tasks that include wound care, daily insulin injections, and medication administration.

And Finally, Why Choose Attending Home Care?

Simply put, we understand people. That claim is based on years of work in the Home Health Care industry. Every member is unique, every situation is different. Families turn to Attending Home Care for lots of reasons. But, in most cases, it distills down to a single word: Trust! 

Our friendly and dedicated staff members will be there to hold your hand throughout the enrollment process. You can expect one-on-one individual attention.

Who is Eligible for CDPAP?

Any patient who qualifies for Medicaid and requires home care, personal care or skilled nursing services, can sign up for the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP).

How Many Hours of Home Care Can a Client Receive?

This is highly individualized. Each client will have a representative from his/her insurance company meet with him/her to determine, based on the needs, how many hours of home care he/she is eligible for.

What are the Requirements to Qualify?

Consumers must require assistance with activities of daily living or skilled care and be self- directing or have a designated representative that is willing and able to direct care as per the program’s requirements.

How Much Will The Caregiver Earn?

Attending Home Care offers competitive rates and benefits to all CDPAP caregivers. We process payroll every week so that a weekly check will be processed.

Does the Personal Assistant Require Any Kind of Special Training or Schooling?

No. The caregiver will not need any kind of formal training, license or certificate to be employed. Any skills that might be needed for this opportunity will be taught directly by the patient.
