THEY CAN GET PAID TO CARE FOR YOU!
The Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) makes it possible for people to choose their own caregivers. The caregiver you choose is paid for their time. LifeCare Advantage is a licensed provider that helps you through the enrollment process.
If you qualify for the CDPAP program, you can choose a loved one to be your caregiver and they can get paid for their service.
