Personal Care that is Personal

Do you or a loved one need help in the home? Are you uneasy with home health aides you don’t know assisting you with bathing, dressing, meal preparation, or other activities of daily living?

You are not alone…with the Consumer Directed Personal Assistant Program (CDPAP), you now have the power to choose who cares for you.

Freedom to choose your own Personal Assistant!

  • As the Consumer in CDPAP, you get to recruit, hire and train your own Personal Assistant, which may include a family member, friend, or someone you know and trust in your neighborhood.
  • Your Personal Assistant can assist you with activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and medication management.
  • Most people, including your adult children, can serve as Personal Assistants and GET PAID to provide you care by a CDPAP (Spouses may not provide care under CDPAP).

When a loved one requires assistance, consider the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP)!
