Learning about the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program


You are probably asking yourself the question many have asked themselves the first time they heard about the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program, otherwise commonly referred to as the CDPAP. You are wondering if and how it affects you in particular. Basically, the program allows consumers who are self directed and or those who work for them to look into all issues of personal assistants of their own choice. What this essentially points to with the role of the personal assistants is that you will be able to handle the following tasks with them. View

The following are the examples of the functions you can achieve through the CDPAP; recruitment where you will be able to research and recruit the skills that you need, interview and hire, manage, plan, and supervise and direct and dismiss as it may be called for. Being such a self directed consumer, you will be able to look into your needs for the PA's, set the goals to be met by the personnel to be chosen for the role, and control their services to ensure that they actually satisfy the set standards.

"Who qualifies?" is yet another question that will be troubling many minds as a matter of fact. Actually, you may not believe the numbers that do qualify for this program as a matter of it being tailored as a personal assistance service or program. There are some essentials in qualifications that a consumer needs to satisfy before you may be considered fit for the program and some of them are as mentioned below. The first one is that the consumer should be able to make informed decisions or a representative to do so. The other factor you need to look into for eligibility is that of eligibility for Medicaid. You as well need to ensure that you have eligibility for Long Term Home Care, AIDS Home Care, or Personal Care before you get to qualify for the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program. Those who are as well certified under the home health agency services as well are eligible for the application for personal assistants through the Consumer Directed Personal Assistants Program.

We as well ask ourselves this about the CDPAP, that is, how it differs from the Standard Home Care Services. You will realize that the two are so similar as to be mistaken for being one when you look at the kind of the services of care that they get your loved ones put under their care. CDPAP is anyway different from the Standard Home Care Services in that with it a consumer has the absolute choice over the personnel who is going to offer you the care service. Visit
