I highly recommend Caring Assistants Home Care Agency. I recently switched to this agency and the Intake Coordinators Elena Kim and Darcon Polanco helped us have such a smooth transition. They helped me with every question I had and did it in the timely manner. Also I would like to mention our Care coordinator Alena who is very professional and attentive and always got back to us immediately. I recommend this agency, you will be in good hands.

What is CDPAP?

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is a New York Medicaid-funded program that allows elderly and disabled individuals to have greater control over their home care experience. It enables them to choose caregivers they trust, including family and friends, and ensures these caregivers are compensated for their services.

What Role Does Caring Assistants Play in CDPAP?

Caring Assistants is a specialized division that focuses on the CDPAP program. We ensure that caregivers are paid on time and handle all the administrative tasks, making the home care experience smooth and personalized for each individual.

What is a Fiscal Intermediary (FI)?

A Fiscal Intermediary, like Caring Assistants, is responsible for the administrative and financial aspects of the CDPAP program. We help you manage your chosen caregivers effectively.

Who is Eligible for CDPAP?

To be eligible for CDPAP, you must:
  • Be enrolled in Medicaid
  • Require assistance in daily living
  • Be capable of directing your own care or have someone who can do so on your behalf

How Does the Application Process Work?

The application process can be complex, but Caring Assistants makes it simple. Our dedicated specialists guide you through each step, ensuring a hassle-free experience.

Who Can Be a Caregiver in CDPAP?

Almost anyone you trust can be a caregiver, except for spouses, designated care representatives, and parents if you are under 21. Caregivers do not need prior healthcare experience, as you can train them yourself.

What Are the Responsibilities and Benefits of a Caregiver?

CDPAP caregivers can perform a wide range of tasks, from administering medications to skilled nursing tasks. They are also eligible for various benefits, including insurance and paid time off.

What Are the Financial Aspects of CDPAP?

The program is fully funded by Medicaid, so there are no out-of-pocket expenses for consumers. Caregivers are compensated by Caring Assistants, with rates based on location and hours of service.

How is CDPAP Different from Traditional Home Care?

CDPAP offers more flexibility and control to the consumer. It allows for specialized care without the need for formal training and helps to bypass common staffing shortages in traditional home care.
