At its heart, the CDPAP program provides the opportunity to receive care from someone you already know – likely someone you already have a loving relationship. Like any relationship, there is likely to be a give and take – perhaps they don’t make the bed the same way you do or fold shirts in their style. What’s important is that you work together to ensure that you are safe and comfortable, which may include overlooking minor, non-critical details.
Working with a CDPAP caregiver is a team effort, and if you follow the guidelines above, you’ll find your daily life enriched and your relationship stronger. If you’re not yet a member of the CDPAP program, but are interested in receiving more information and possibly signing up, contact your home healthcare agency today. They can help you get through the paperwork and quickly put you on the path to care.
