With a rapidly aging population and more and more people wanting to stay in their homes, the demand for homecare has never been higher. This strong demand results in a tight labor market for caregivers and rising rates. For most Medicaid patients, paying for care out of pocket is beyond their financial means.
The Medicaid CDPAP enables individuals to hire someone they trust at no cost and have Medicaid pay that person a fair, living wage.
Studies show that when seniors are able to remain in their home, they stay healthier, happier have fewer falls, and experience lower hospitalization rates than people in a care facility. And, unlike many facilities which offer generalized care, an at-home caregiver can provide more personalized care.
From companionship to meal prep to medication administration, a home caregiver can help.
