CDPAP Rockland County

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) offers a valuable option for elderly or disabled individuals who are on Medicaid and need help with daily living activities. This program allows patients to hire a family member or friend as their caregiver. Under CDPAP, these caregivers receive payment through Medicaid, facilitating a system where care recipients can stay in the comfort and familiarity of their homes. Studies have consistently shown that seniors living at home tend to be healthier, happier, suffer fewer falls, and have lower hospitalization rates compared to those in care facilities.

Your Care - Our Passion

The goal of CDPAP is to bestow recipients with decision-making power, letting them decide the nature, provider, and delivery mode of their care.

Is it Necessary for my Caregiver to Reside in NY?

Yes, it is. Your caregiver must be a legal resident of New York. This includes immigrants and non-citizens, but they must provide proof of their legal residency to qualify as your personal care assistant.

What Kinds of Services can My Caregiver Offer?

The CDPAP offers the advantage of allowing your personal assistant to perform tasks beyond the scope of a conventional home aide. Whereas traditional home aides often face restrictions in administering certain medications or executing specific household tasks, personal assistants under this program can undertake duties similar to nurses. 

This includes administering oxygen or assisting with insulin injections. They can also assume typical home attendant roles, depending on your specific needs and the areas where you require assistance.

Am I Responsible for Paying the Caregiver?

No, you are not. Under the CDPAP, Medicaid covers the payment for your caregiver. As a recipient of these services, you will not incur any personal expenses.
