When my sister became ill and was no longer able to manage day-to-day routines on her own, she asked me to help with her transition home.
While searching for care options, we discovered Elite Choice and CDPAP. Elite helped get me approved to be her Personal Assistant, and now I have the flexibility to earn part time income while I care for my best friend-my sister!

CDPAP at a Glance
CDPAP allows you to hire an individual, regardless if they are your family member or friend, to help you with your care.
The person receiving the care is called the Consumer. The person providing the care is called the Personal Assistant or PA.
Elite Choice is the entity that facilitates the process and pays the PA on a weekly basis. Direct Deposit is offered and some PA's are making over $40k annually.
There are no licensing requirements to be a PA. As long as you are legally able to work in the United States, you can be a Personal Assistant.
In some instances you can provide care to a family member living in the same home and/or to a pediatric child that requires care.
The definition of care varies. In some instances it’s total care for a bed bound client, and in others, it’s defined as doing laundry, errands and accompanying them to medical appointments.
The CDPAP program is offered as a Medicaid benefit. Our knowledgeable experts will gladly help you apply.
