What Are The Requirements To Become a CDPAP Caregiver?

Personal assistants are not eligible to be hired under CDPAP if he/she is the spouse of, is legally responsible for or the designated representative of the individual needing care. This means that any person over 18, who is not legally responsible for a individual care may become a CDPAP caregiver. In particular, this means that a parent of an adult child (21 years of age or older) may serve as that adult child’s pesonal assistant through CDPAP. Parents of children who are younger than 21 cannot be hired as that minor child’s CDPAP assistant.
