There is no better caregiver than a family member or a friend that loves you!


The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program is a New York State Medicaid plan which allows consumers to hire family, friends, neighbors or the Personal Assistant (PA) of their choice to provide services for help with activities of daily living (ADL). Community Care’s CDPAP program allows you to take control of your homecare needs. With our CDPAP program your family member or friend becomes your Personal Assistant and gets paid to care for you. Recipients have the flexibility and freedom in choosing their own caregivers and hours of care.
