TESTIMONIALS

Real people. Real answers.

Patricia Charles
New York, NYC

"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." 

Elizabeth Salley
Brooklyn, NY

"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." 

Richard Branker
Long Island, NY

“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."

Here's how it works:

STEp 1

Get assessed

A nurse will visit you at home to determine if you’re eligible for the CDPAP program. You'll find out how many weekly hours of care you can get.

STEp 2

Choose a caregiver

You choose a caregiver: your daughter, son, relative, or friend. We come to your home to enroll you in the program.

STEp 3

You get care — they get paid

You get ongoing care from a person who loves you. They get peace of mind — because they’re getting paid for the care they give.

“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.
