CDPAP Saint Lawrence County
The Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) stands out as a distinctive program funded by Medicaid. It caters to individuals with chronic health conditions or disabilities who need home care and assistance with daily activities. What sets CDPAP apart is its empowerment of eligible Medicaid recipients to manage their own care. Participants have the freedom to select their caregivers, including family members or friends, and are also responsible for setting their caregiver's schedule and work directives. This autonomy enhances their sense of independence and comfort in their own homes.
