A CDPAP ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION AND FREE EMPLOYMENT INFORMATION BRIDGE BETWEEN CONSUMERS AND PERSONAL ASSISTANT CANDIDATES

After 20-years of Co-Founding and nurturing a large Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) in New York City, the program and its participants have taught me a great deal about the unique nature of this home care delivery system (Resume). To promote the expansion of the Consumer Directed philosophy, I created this web site, wrote the statement entitled CDPAP - Fundamentals, prepared the RESOURCES section, developed a Weekly Newsletter to provide information about current program developments or articles and to post information about currently available Personal Assistant Candidates. In addition to the above I have prepared A History of the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) in New York City 1977 to 2001 to outline the development of the program in New York City and to highlight the contributions made by a variety of individuals, both Consumers and Non-Consumers and prepared the statement CDPAP - Different from all other Home Care Programs.

RESOURCES: This portion of the web site contains a useful collection of links to CDPAP or related organizations, and links to CDPAP related documents. The selected documents were included because they outline the program's history, provide information about program alternatives, offer a scientific assessment of the program, and direct the reader to related topics that may prove useful to a Consumer or a Program Organizer.

CONSUMERS / ADVOCATES: To assist New York Metro Area Consumers with one of the core responsibilities, Consumer Directed Services has developed this service to enable you to quickly and inexpensively receive a Newsletter with a list of recently posted PCA Candidates who are looking for work, Articles about the CDPAP and a list of PCA Employment Services that may be able to assist you with your search.

PCA EMPLOYMENT SERVICES: If your Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Employment Service, assists Self-Pay and CDPAP Consumers in the NYC Metro Area, you can choose to have your agency included in the PCA Newsletter.
