CDPAP Program and You

What is CDPAP?

Meet Laura. Laura needed help around the house but couldn’t help noticing that her home health aide was watching TV and not helping her with her needs. Laura called Family Always First Home Care (FAFHHC) and was able to hire her daughter Nancy to take care of her. Now Laura gets the care she deserves, and Nancy can spend her time with her mother while paying back her student loans.

Family Always First is a contracted provider of CDPAP NY, a Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program that allows people to hire and manage their own caregivers.
