The CDPAP program from Parent Care offers families throughout New York, including Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens, this unique option for in-home health services. The CDPAP programs allows a qualified home care consumer the ability to find their own caregiver and hire them to handle personal assistant duties
What Is CDPAP?
- Parent Care’s CDPAP program provides eligible consumers the ability to hire personal assistants they know and trust for more personalized home care assistance.
- CDPAP is the ideal solution for anyone who wants to create their own home care schedule with a caregiver of their choosing.
- CDPAP stands out from most other home care assistance programs due to the fact that consumer can choose almost anyone to work as their personal assistants. These caregivers may already be providing services and spending time with the consumer, and would make for an ideal candidate.
- A son or daughter, a grandchild, a niece or nephew, another relative, or even a neighbor may qualify as a personal assistant
- Some daily requirements of a consumer may require a higher level of training than what a traditional home health aide can provide. In these instances, a personal assistant through the CDPAP program may be able to step in and provide those services.
Who Qualifies for CDPAP?
- A CDPAP consumer must be self-directing and must be willing to assume responsibility for the recruiting, hiring, training, and supervision of their chosen personal assistant.
- CDPAP members must qualify for Medicaid. If you live in Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, or Brooklyn, or elsewhere in New York, Parent Care can provide more detailed instructions to start your enrollment process so you can start taking full advantage of the unique benefits CDPAP offers.
Why Do Families Choose Parent Care for CDPAP
CDPAP offers more flexibility and independence than traditional home care services. CDPAP personal assistants do not require Home Health Aide (HHA) certification. The responsibilities of a personal assistant in the CDPAP program can include some of the following:
- Household cleaning and basic day-to-day housekeeping.
- Preparation and serving of meals.
- Unique Cultural Competency
- Freedom for a More Versatile Lifestyle
- Assisting the patient with eating.
- Helping the patient bathe.
- Dressing and grooming the patient.
- Handling the patient’s laundry.
- Shopping for groceries and necessary household items on behalf of the patient.
The unique benefit provided by Parent Care CDPAP is that you choose someone on whom you can rely to handle these responsibilities, establishing a more personal connection between patients and personal assistants. You can also rest assured knowing your caregiver’s work is processed and paid for through Parent Care, reliably every week.
