Consumer Personal Assistance Program is what CDPAP is in full and it is Medicaid program that gives an alternative options on matters concerning home care service. In CDPAP is where the consumer is given more control over who is to provide the care and the way they should be able provided it.
If you have a loved one at home who needs to be looked after every time and you cannot be able to do that while still working to make a living for the both of you then CDPAP is the right thing for you. It will give the power to choose any suitable individual that you know well and trust and be able to train them how to cater for the needs of your loved one at an agreed reasonable fee. From family members, relatives or friends is where your pic should come from and it has to work for you the best way.
You will get to train your assistant to do various of things for you such as meal preparation, bathing, dressing and medication management. This actually better than having to employ a home care agency or vendor which will control selection, scheduling and training of the aides provided and get to pay a bigger fee. If you are the consumer you will be able to do this step by step making sure nothing is left out meaning it will be a good job well done because you will not afford to make any mistakes for your own sake.
A home care agency, AIDS home care program, a long term program that deals in home care or personal care are what that certify a particular individual to be able to do such work. Despite that they should also have a medical condition that is stable and be self-directing, if not then they should have a designated representative.
There is another merit in the CDPAP that allows aides to do care that requires specific skills but, if they cannot do them then a nurse will be required to perform of such nature. The kind of tasks that need such skills are like medication – possibly the consumer is able to self-administer, suctioning tracheostomies and insulin injections.
In addition aides are not like actual employees that come from a particular home care agency, they are more like independent contractors who are paid in wages and are beneficiaries through fiscal intermediary. Aides get to engage in peer mentoring programs together with designees so that they can be educated into becoming better at their jobs.
