The best caregivers do it for love.
That doesn't mean they should do it for free.

Mom and daughter walking together

Under New York’s Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program, also known as CDPAP, patients can take ownership of their home health care by selecting a caregiver that they know and trust.

Rather than bringing in a stranger to care for your loved one, you and your family can choose the caregiver who'll be providing the home care services they need.

And those who wish to care for their chronically ill or physically disabled loved one can get the compensation they need and deserve.

Best of all? It only takes one phone call to get started.

With CDPAP, everyone benefits.

You’ll never have to worry if your loved one is safe, comfortable, and cared for. When you’re with them every day, they get the care they deserve—and you get peace of mind.

Kindness that pays

Get paid to help someone you love. You’ll receive a competitive paycheck every week so you can give wholeheartedly, without financial struggle, stress, or sacrifice.

Soothing support-icon

Soothing support

There’s no comfort like a familiar face. Your loved one will enjoy spending time with someone they already like and trust, without the disruption of getting to know a new aide.

Empowering all-icon

Empowering all

Letting your loved one choose and train their caregiver gives them a sense of control and dignity at a time when they’re dependent on others. You'll both feel empowered.

A big blessing, financially and emotionally”

My mom is the most important person in my life. Because of her dementia, she is afraid of new faces and needs to be cared for by someone she knows and is comfortable with.

The CDPAP is a big blessing, both financially and emotionally. I don’t have to pay someone else out of my paycheck, I don’t need to monitor how well they’re doing the job, and I can have peace of mind that my mom is getting the care she needs.

Attending has been amazing to work with—always so understanding, professional, and responsive. I’ve been with them for 5 years, and I have zero complaints. That says something.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for CDPAP?

arrow-icon

Anyone who qualifies for Medicaid and requires home care, personal care or skilled nursing services can take advantage of CDPAP.

Who can become a caregiver?

arrow-icon

If you’re at least 18 years old and legally allowed to work in the United States, you can become a caregiver and get paid through CDPAP. You won’t qualify for CDPAP if you are the recipient’s legal spouse, or if they are under 21 years old and you are their parent.

Do I need special training to be a caregiver?

arrow-icon

No, you won’t need any formal training or certification. Your homecare recipient (or their guardian) will fill you in on everything you need to know to provide their care.

As a caregiver, what will I do for my loved one?

arrow-icon

You’ll help them with everyday tasks like food preparation, personal hygiene, household cleaning and transportation to and from medical appointments. Unlike traditional home health care, a CDPAP caregiver can also assist with medical needs such as wound care and medication administration.

If my loved one doesn’t have Medicaid, can they still benefit from CDPAP?

arrow-icon
