“Best program ever”
I’ve had aides in the past, but it always ended badly. This is one of the best programs ever. I’m so happy that my niece is helping me.

“Mom is getting stronger, and it feels so good”
We brought in a couple of aides for my mother, but I could tell she wasn’t happy. Now I get to care for Mom daily — and she’s smiling and laughing. I feel really good, knowing she’s getting stronger each day.
“Her face lit up!”
It was hard, because I didn’t want to leave my mom at home – I was scared she’d leave the stove on or get hurt. And you only get one mother. Now I get to have a job AND care for my mom at once. It’s literally PERFECT.
Getting care you trust is simple as 1 – 2 – 3.
1. Get Assessed
You fill out this form and send in some paperwork. Then a nurse will reach out to determine how many weekly hours of care you can get with CDPAP (Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program).
2. Choose a Caregiver
You choose a caregiver you love: your daughter, son, relative, or friend. We schedule an orientation call to finalize your enrollment.
3. You Get Care – They Get Paid
You get care you can trust, your family member or friend gets paid instantly, and everyone gets peace of mind. Win-win!
All of Our Caregivers Get:
Paid Sick Time
Paid Family Leave
Depending on location and hours worked, some of our caregivers also get:
Generous Wellness Allowance
Cell Phone Reimbursement
Child Care Reimbursement
Dental Care Reimbursement
Zero-Premium Health Insurance
Pampering Care Packages

Caregivers Facebook Group
Exact rate depends on patient’s NY County and insurance provider.
The patient’s Medicaid number will be required to check your exact rate.
If you have Medicaid, you can apply
Do you have one of these Medicaid cards?
FreedomCare is a Medicaid program, so your caregiver will be paid through Medicaid. (Unfortunately, Medicare is NOT enough under current government regulations.) If you don’t have Medicaid but think you may be eligible, call 718-650-6661 to contact a partner vendor who can help.
Hire a family member or friend to care for you — and Caregivers get paid right after their shift!
We pay on time, every time.
