What is a CDPAP Homecare Program?

CDPAP homecare is a Medicaid program that provides home care services including but not limited to, physically disabled or chronically ill individuals who have a medical need for help with activities of daily living (ADLs) or skilled nursing services. This type of program includes any kind of service provided by either a licensed personal care aide, home health aide, or nurse.

The Process of CDPAP Homecare:

The procedure to set up CDPAP Home Care for an individual is an important step to providing care for your loved one. First, the patient must get assessed. A nurse will visit you at home to determine if you’re eligible for Medicaid-funded in-home care. You’ll find out how many weekly hours of care you can get. Next, the patient has the ability to select a caregiver. The homecare provider can be either the patient’s daughter, son, relative, or friend. We come to your home to enroll you in the program. Finally, the process is complete and the home care patient receives ongoing care from a person who they can trust. They get peace of mind because they’re getting paid for the care they give.

Benefits of a CDPAP program

Those who have loved ones that qualify for a CDPAP home care program can get paid for taking care of their loved ones. The CDPAP program grants Medicaid eligible residents the ability to hire, train and supervise a personal assistant of their choosing. A CDPAP program gives patients the opportunity for flexibility and freedom in choosing a caregiver whom they are comfortable with and trust to provide them with the best care possible in the comfort of their own home.
