Program Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP):

Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)

  • Description:

    "A Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program in which the consumer selects, hires and supervises their own staff. CDPAP services are intended to permit chronically ill or physically disabled individuals receiving homecare services greater flexibility and freedom of choice in obtaining such services.

    Are you or loved one chronically ill? Do you or someone you know have a physical disability and want extra help with everyday activities? Wish you had the flexibility and freedom to choose, hire, train, and supervise the staff you invite into your home to care for you or your loved ones?

    The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) provides services to assist those who are chronically ill or have a physical disability and want to live at home, but need skilled nursing services and/or help performing everyday tasks.

    CDPAP recognizes that you know your own needs better than anyone else does and you should be the person in charge of hiring, training, and supervising your own personal assistant(s). This flexible program provides you with the opportunity to hire your own caregivers, who can be anyone you believe to be the best fit for you and your needs. You will receive guidance and supervisor training, but the choice is yours."
