According to Senior Living and the 2017 census, an estimated 14.5% of U.S. citizens are aged 65 and above. This large population is in higher demand for senior care because many require physical care and support.
One of the programs helping change how people approach care for seniors is CDPAP (Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program), a New York State Medicaid program. How can seniors benefit from the CDPAP program? Let’s take a look.
By Developing Their Routines
The CDPAP program allows seniors to develop routines that make them feel comfortable, giving them access to care when needed. A personalized routine will enable seniors to highlight the activities they enjoy the most and gives them the flexibility to change their habits. This is important because their patterns change over time due to their health status and preferences.
By Picking the Caregivers, They Want
The CDPAP program gives seniors the power to pick the caregivers they want. Not only that but if the patient isn’t comfortable meeting or interacting with caregivers who are strangers to them. They can opt for friends or family members as their primary paid caregivers.
By Picking the Services, They Get
Traditional health practices are different from the CDPAP program. Not only does the patient pick their caregiver, but they also pick the services they receive. There is no need to worry about the caregiver’s schedule since they are only assigned one patient.
The CDPAP Program requires a Fiscal Intermediary like Special Touch Home Care. If you reside in the state of New York and you have a senior who needs care, enroll them in the CDPAP program. Fill out the form below for a free consultation.
