Consumer Directed Personal Assistant Program (CDPAP) is a statewide Medicaid program that allows self directing individuals or their administrators to control all aspects of their own care. Individuals choose and train their own caregivers, manage their own schedules and America Homecare pays that caregiver on your behalf
The individuals recieving care have the choice to select any aide they prefer. The caregiver is most typically a direct relative like son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, grandchild, etc. Aides are also family friends or neighbors.
Spouses cannot serve as an aide. A “designated representative” of the CDPAP consumer may not serve as a caregiving.
