As we grow older, it’s important to make sure our health is taken care of, living a safe and comfortable life. However, moving into an assisted living facility doesn’t have to be the only option. Home care is a great option for those who need some extra help and wish to maintain their independence.
Edison Home Health Care’s Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is perfect for any elderly person in need of assistance around the home. CDPAP allows Medicaid consumers enrolled in the program to recruit, hire and direct a home attendant of their choice.
Long-term home care is great for anyone requiring assistance with day-to-day activities or skilled care.
What sets CDPAP apart from other home care options is that the personal assistants you chose to work with do not need special certification or licensing. They can also administer skilled services such as giving insulin shots, suctioning tracheostomies and providing wound care.
The folks at Edison Home Health Care get it. Sometimes those who require assistance (and their families as well) are wary of letting a stranger into their home to assist them. Through CDPAP, members of the consumer’s family, including their children, can be hired to care for their family.
Most Medicaid consumers are eligible to enroll in CDPAP. If you don’t have Medicaid, don’t worry! There are Medicaid specialists on hand at Edison Home Health Care ready to help you apply for Medicaid.
For information about enrolling, see: CDPAP – Program Enrollment. If you have questions regarding the enrollment process, Edison Home Health Care’s knowledgeable staff is there to assist you through the process.
