Let your loved ones do what they want most:

take care of you, and get paid for it.

FreedomCare is a licensed provider of CDPAP NY, a Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program that allows people to hire and manage their own caregivers.

Who can be a CDPAP caregiver?

  • Child
  • Relative
  • Friend
  • Legal Spouse
  • Parent caring for a minor child

When you enroll in CDPAP with FreedomCare, you get consistent care from a person who loves you.

What is the CDPAP Program?

Meet Maria.
Maria is 82, and she cannot manage alone.

"I need help. And I don’t do well with strangers.”

Maria needs someone to cook, clean, and shop. She needs someone to...
  • manage her bills
  • monitor her medications
  • take her to doctors' appointments.
More details about this

Maria is a perfect candidate for CDPAP because she has Medicaid, lives in New York, needs home care, and can self-direct her care (or have it directed by her representative). With CDPAP, caregivers help their loved ones with all personal assistance needs. But unlike home health aides (HHAs) and personal care aides (PCAs) who may only provide custodial care like dressing, bathing, and cooking, CDPAP caregivers are also allowed to administer skilled services, like giving insulin shots, caring for wounds, and suctioning tracheostomies.

She got an agency aide for a while, but it didn’t work out.

(The aide looked like she rather be anywhere else.)

“I want someone I KNOW. Someone who really loves me.”

Maria is sick of getting a new aide every three weeks. She needs someone reliable, for the long term.

“I wish my daughter could afford to take care of me.”

  • Someone she trusts.
  • Someone who cares.
  • Someone who won’t watch TV all day.

Meet Julia, her daughter.

Julia is 48 years old, and she’s sick with worry. She knows that many agency aides don’t have her mom’s best interests at heart.

But she can’t afford to take off more hours from work.

“Is my mom being treated well? Is she being abused, or neglected?”

Julia knows her mother’s care is not a game.

It’s about health

Mom needs someone who’ll help her maintain her diet and go to critical medical appointments.

It’s about quality of life

Mom needs someone who’ll ensure that she’s groomed, stimulated, and well-nourished at all times.

It’s about happiness

Mom needs someone who isn’t doing the bare minimum. Someone who will bring her real JOY.

What if things could be different?

What if Julia could afford to take care of Maria — and ensure her mom’s greatest quality of life?

Now, she can!

With CDPAP by Freedom Care, your loved ones can get paid for the care they give...and spend even more (paid) time bringing you joy.

It's okay to need help
"After my last stroke, I needed full-time help. I’ve worked all my life, and it was hard to be needy. But FreedomCare eased the transition. They are warm and caring, and they showed me that it’s okay to need help."

Not just anyone
“I have a disability, and I didn’t want just anyone taking care of me. With FreedomCare, I don't have to deal with home attendants; my partner takes care of me. And the office staff is full of compassion.”
Martina Concepcion

I'm comfortable
"I was unhappy with the service I was getting from my home attendant. Now I’ve got a family member helping me, and I am so comfortable."
