In fact, according to Pew Research, 45% of American adults aged 65 and above use Facebook, which is expected to grow by 50% or more by now. It’s no doubt that the popularity of social platforms is increasing, especially among this demographic. Because of this, more seniors are looking at different long-term care options.

One option is the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), which assists seniors with their medical care. Seniors can use the CDPAP application to apply for government benefits such as home care services to independently manage their home health care.

Let’s review what you need to know about the CDPAP application and how to seek help.

Who Can Qualify for CDPAP?

CDPAP is a Medicaid program that provides in-home health care services to people with chronic illnesses or disabilities. CDPAP allows an individual to choose their caregivers, who can either be family members or friends.

These caregivers get trained and paid by the program to provide care for the senior.

CDPAP is available in all 50 states, but the specific eligibility requirements and program details vary from state to state.

To determine if you are eligible for CDPAP, contact Special Touch Home Care to learn more about applying for the CDPAP program.

Features of CDPAP

CDPAP is a program that allows consumers to choose and direct their in-home care. Consumers can select, train, and supervise their assistants who provide the necessary support to live independently in their homes and communities.

The CDPAP program provides a high degree of flexibility and control for consumers, who can design their care plans. Personal assistants are usually family members or close friends of the consumer who act as an emotional outlet. They can offer assistance in everyday tasks that range from grocery lists to scheduling appointments and running errands.

The CDPAP is a Medicaid-funded program. It is available to low-income individuals who meet the program’s eligibility requirements. To participate in CDPAP, consumers need to be assessed by a licensed physician or nurse practitioner to determine if they are eligible for the program.
