More details about this

Not all CDPAP consumers will get approved for the same number of hours: there’s a wide range of eligibility. Your Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care plan will determine how many hours you will receive.

Spend quality time with the people you love

With CDPAP by FreedomCare, you can get exceptional care from someone you love — while giving them reliable pay for their time.

Did you know?

Care from a family member is associated with better health — and longer life.

When you’re deeply familiar with your aide, everyone communicates more effectively.

  • Medical complications are caught earlier
  • Hospital trips are minimized
  • Health tragedies are avoided

What’s more, aide turnover (when your aide leaves, and you get a new one) is linked to:

lower quality of care
negative health outcomes

Studies show that when your aide is a family member, turnover is 50% less likely.

In other words?
You’re more likely to stay healthy in the hands of a family member.
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."

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.”

It's a win-win
"I’m an entrepreneur. Being there for my mom did not allow me to generate the income I needed, so getting financial assistance while taking care of her is a win-win."

A blessing
“I have multiple sclerosis. After my second hospitalization, I realized I needed help. To have my best friend be here for me is a blessing. My caseworker, Ashley, is very helpful — I feel comfortable calling anytime. And having someone I trust work for me keeps my mind at ease.”
