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.
