If you have Medicaid,
you can apply.

Do you have one of these Medicaid cards?

If yes, then... you can get care from someone who loves you — and you won’t pay a cent.

FreedomCare is a Medicaid program, so your caregiver will be paid through Medicaid. (Unfortunately, Medicare is NOT enough under current government regulations.) If you don’t have Medicaid but think you may be eligible, click here to contact a partner vendor who can help.

"Best program ever"

I’ve had aides in the past, but it always ended badly. This is one of the best programs ever. I’m so happy that my niece is helping me. And our contact at FreedomCare is wonderful.

“You only get ONE mother”

It was hard, because I didn’t want to leave my mom at home — I was scared she’d leave the stove on or get hurt. And you only get one mother.  Now I get to have a job AND care for my mom at once. It’s literally PERFECT.

“Mom is getting stronger, and it feels so good”

My mother had two strokes. We brought in a couple of aides, but I could tell she wasn’t happy. Now I get to care for Mom daily — and she’s smiling and laughing. I feel like it’s my destiny. If I could do for her even 1/10 of what she did for me, I could look at her and say “I know she had the best care.” I feel really good, knowing she’s getting stronger each day.

"Returning the love"

I’m returning all the love that my grandmother has been giving me for years.

"Her face lit up"

I was in between jobs, looking for a new one. I thought: ‘What’s going to happen to my mom while I️’m at work all day?' When I told her I’d be caring for her every day, her face lit up. It was a thrilling moment for me.

"He knows how to take care of me"

I wasn’t satisfied with my home care, so I started browsing the Internet. I found FreedomCare, and I spoke to a nice man named Danny — he was very knowledgeable and personable. Today, my son is my aide. He knows how to take care of me very well.

"Not a stranger"

I like that I have someone I know helping me — not a stranger, who would have to get to know my likes and dislikes. The staff is courteous and friendly, and they always answer my questions.

The process was easy, and the people were professional. Everyone at the office was helpful from start to finish, and now I have a family member taking care of me.
