You can hire a family member or friend to provide the care you need in your own home. Your caregiver will be paid and receive benefits through the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP). There will be no charge to you.
At Community Home Care, our job is to ensure that your home care runs smoothly and successfully.
We help you enroll in the CDPAP program, manage payments and benefits to your caregiver, and help you change caregivers should the need arise.
At Community Home Care, our goal is to enhance the lives of our clients and their families. You can hire most family members or friends to provide care in your own home.
What’s the best part?
You won’t have to worry about strangers providing your care because you already know the best person for the job. You get to live independently on your terms—and your family member or friend gets paid.
Have A Question?
Contact Community Home Care with any questions you have about CDPAP. We know you value your independence, and we work hard to make sure you can remain in your own home.
YOUR HOME, YOUR COMMUNITY
How CDPAP Works
CDPAP is a New York State Department of Health Medicaid program that allows you to control your home care. You can choose, train, and guide your Personal Assistant to provide the exceptional care you deserve. That’s right—family members or friends get paid to be your caregiver!
Community is always reachable, and there's never a time when I feel I'm completely on my own, whether it's an issue with my husband's care or a problem that the aide might have. At all times, and in all ways, Community smooths the way for us. They make my life, and the life of my family so much easier.

I thank Community a million times over for their ongoing support with everything. I can't afford to lose my aide and I know it's Community that's keeping him satisfied in his job. I just hope that they'll be there for me forever.
– Paul Beker
I never hesitate to call when I have a problem because I know there will be a listening, sympathetic ear and that they will be eager to help me. I don't know if it's amazing luck or that we have a guardian angel that's watching out for us, but Community is certainly the best thing that has happened in our lives in the past twelve years.

From our very first contact with Community, we knew we were in good hands. I was never treated as a wheelchair bound anonymous person, a representative came down to our house to meet us to get a complete picture of our circumstances and specific needs. They showed great interest in everything we requested and followed through on every detail.
