FreedomCare is a contracted provider of CDPAP, a Medicaid-funded program that allows New Yorkers to hire their own caregivers: a daughter, son, relative, friend or previously hired aide.
You get loving care.
Your loved one gets paid!
Am I eligible for this program?
Live in New York
Need help with day-to-day activities
You are likely eligible. Due to government regulations, Medicare is NOT enough.
Who can I hire
as a caregiver?
Parent caring for a child under 21
Where is FreedomCare available?
FreedomCare is available in EVERY COUNTY in New York State.
It is NOT available outside of New York.
If you have Medicaid,
you can apply.
Do you have one of these Medicaid cards?
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.
Real people. Real changes.
"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."
"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."
“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:
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.
You choose a caregiver: your daughter, son, relative, or friend. We come to your home to enroll you in the program.
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.
