“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 I’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.”

CDPAP Payments: By Humans, for Humans

Our CDPAP payments are delightfully automated, but our staff is delightfully human.

Is your caregiver having trouble clocking in? Just give us a call. We’re here for you.

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.

Getting started with CDPAP payments:

Speak to a person within seconds. Always.

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.
