HELP ME APPLY

Sunray CDPAP let me take control of my homecare and regain my personal freedom. After suffering a stroke and becoming homebound, I was able to hire my daughter to attend to my needs and receive top-notch loving care without opening my home to strangers. There is nothing which could compare to the love and quality time with my daughter that Sunray CDPAP made possible!

What exactly is CDPAP?

Great question! CDPAP (Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program) is an innovative program which allows Medicaid recipients to choose their own caregivers. Rather than the traditional home care option which required patients to allow strangers into their homes, CDPAP grants individuals the freedom and flexibility to choose their own caregiver.

What if I don’t have Medicaid?

No problem! We’ll be glad to walk you through the Medicaid application process as well, so that you meet the CDPAP eligibility requirements.

Who can I hire to be my personal assistant?

CDPAP grants enormous freedom to individuals to choose their own caregivers. Friends, neighbors, and loved ones are all eligible. However, spouses are not eligible since anyone “legally responsible” for the client cannot be a compensated CDPAP caregiver.
