Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)
CDPAP will help consumers to hire the caregiver (families or friends) of their choice. For example, Mary wanted to hire a caregiver for her mother but understood that her mother had refused several caregivers in the past she felt are strangers coming into her home. Mary became her mother's caregiver through the Medicaid New York CD PAP program. She was able to take care of her mother Exactly the way she wanted and get paid for it. The care she gave her mother includes medication administration, personal care, bill payment and much more.
