FreedomCare is a licensed provider of CDPAP NY, a Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program that allows people to hire and manage their own caregivers.
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.
Mom needs someone who’ll help her maintain her diet and go to critical medical appointments.
Mom needs someone who’ll ensure that she’s groomed, stimulated, and well-nourished at all times.
Mom needs someone who isn’t doing the bare minimum. Someone who will bring her real JOY.
What if Julia could afford to take care of Maria — and ensure her mom’s greatest quality of life?
