The benefits

of CDPAP payments:

"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.

"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 everyday, her face lit up. It was a thrilling moment for me.

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

We brought in a couple of aides for my mother, but I could tell she wasn’t happy. Now I get to care for Mom daily — and she’s smiling and laughing. I feel really good, knowing she’s getting stronger each day.

“I can now care for my father... and pay my bills”

My father's illness required me to leave my professional job. It was reassuring to know that I can care for my father and get compensated for it.
