Hours are completely flexible, so your loved one can coordinate with you to make a schedule that works for both.
No certifications; no prior training. All that’s required is a capable person who wants to care for someone they love.
Who has time for in-person office visits? To register, just send us all required documents from the comfort of your home.
Tired of filling out papers by hand? Tired of dropping off timesheets? Tired of dealing with mistakes — then waiting weeks for corrected payments to arrive?
With FreedomCare CDPAP, caregivers enjoy a smarter payment system that gives
weekly automated compensation, painlessly and fast.
Using our custom app, caregivers clock in and out with the touch of a button.
Caregivers watch the money appear in their accounts every Friday. (No bank account? They’ll get paid via free pay card or check.)
Caregivers deserve to get paid with MAXIMUM ease and MINIMUM stress. That’s why every person who signs up with FreedomCare gets a personal coordinator assigned to their case. Someone who’s there to walk you — and your caregiver — through every step,
and resolve any hitches along the way.
Our average wait time is 7 seconds. That means you’re guaranteed a friendly, professional, and helpful response anytime you call our office. If your assigned coordinator is unavailable, you’ll get the help of a back-up staff member.
Want a hassle-free process and professional coordinators? You’re in the right place. Our clients consistently report that their biggest surprise is “how fast and smooth it was to sign up.”
Got a question or concern? You’ll get your coordinator on the phone immediately. We think issues should be resolved, pronto. It’s that simple.
Life can be tough. You need to be around people who are just plain nice. Our staff members are known to make happy birthday calls, well-wishes, or simply drop off your caregiver’s check if they need it now.
You can work a maximum of 60 hours per week. The exact number will depend on:
The FreedomCare CDPAP pay rate is $11-$13 per hour and $16.50-$19.50 per overtime hour. The exact hourly rate depends on your location in New York.
