What Is CDPAP?
Your Health, Your Home, Your Way

The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is not just a program; it's a revolutionary approach to home care that empowers you like never before. With CDPAP, you're not just a recipient of care; you become the director of your own well-being. Imagine having the authority to choose your own caregiver—someone you trust, be it a family member, friend, or neighbor. CDPAP puts you in the driver's seat, allowing you to design a care plan that perfectly aligns with your unique needs and preferences. It's about dignity, choice, and the freedom to receive care that's deeply personal. Backed by New York Medicaid, CDPAP ensures that your caregiver is compensated for the compassionate support that only a loved one can provide. Discover the future of home care with CDPAP—where you're in control and your well-being comes first.
