It can make more financial sense to compensate for the care already offered rather than adding additional services.
CDPAP can be highly beneficial for the senior needing nursing services and the caregiver already providing care. You’ll need to complete a CDPAP application online to see if you qualify. You’ll have to meet specific requirements to receive compensation as a caregiver.
