Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)

Home Care Agency Serving the New York Area

At Attending Home Care, we encourage our patients to enjoy the freedom and independence of choosing your own caregiver through the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program, or CDPAP.

What is the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program?

Under New York’s CDPAP program, patients can take ownership of their home health care and select a caregiver that they know and trust. Rather than bringing in a stranger to care for your loved one, you and your family can have the final say in who is providing the home care services they need.

Sign up for the consumer directed personal assistance program today. Call us at (718) 717-1010 to get started!

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).

What are the Requirements to Qualify?

To qualify for CDPAP, consumers must need assistance with day to day activities or skilled care. They must be self-directing otherwise have a designated representative who can and will direct care under the CDPAP requirements.

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

No. The caregiver or the representative 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.

What Duties Can a Caregiver Perform?

Under the CDPAP program, caregivers can handle the following:

  • Dressing
  • Feeding
  • Personal hygiene
  • Housecleaning
  • Transportation to and from medical appointments
  • Basic medical needs
  • Medical tasks that include things like daily insulin injections, wound care, and medication administration

How Much Will The Caregiver Earn?
