What is CDPAS?
With Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Services (CDPAS), eligible Teamcare participants can choose a family member* or friend to be their paid caregiver. Now, they can receive care from someone who takes their health and well-being personally.

CDPAS PROCESS expertise
CenterLight has been helping participants and their caregivers enroll in CDPAS for many years. Our team of experts will walk you through the process from start to end. We even come to your home if needed.
access to cdpas agency offering competitive rates
We can refer our participants to a CDPAS agency within our network that offers competitive hourly rates and packages for their caregiver.**
Our participants and their caregivers have access to our Interdisciplinary Team—including Skilled Nurses who visit the home—ensuring they have ongoing support to receive and provide needed care.
We speak your language
Our diverse team reflects the diversity of our participants, and can communicate with you in your language—helping you to easily enroll.
Complete Care for Our Participants
Teamcare participants receive all the services they need to remain safe and independent in their home, which means caregivers will only be responsible for personal assistant duties.
Resources to help caregivers
With our all-inclusive care model, we provide further support to help caregivers, such as coordinating medical appointments and transportation.
**Participants must use a licensed CDPAP/CDPAS Fiscal Intermediary (FI).
Personal assistance services
Our loved ones know us best.
They also understand our habits and our preferences. When we need their help due to an illness or other circumstances, they often spend time assisting with activities such as these. CDPAS enables a friend, sibling, son or daughter, niece or any relative*, to help with personal assistant responsibilities including the following—and to get paid for their services.
- Provider companionship
- Help with grocery shopping
- Assist with activities of daily living, including showering and getting ready for bed
How it Works
CenterLight Teamcare offers our participants all the services they need to remain safely and independently at home, including medical and nursing; physical, occupational and speech therapies; therapeutic recreation; social work services; nutritional counseling and many others, including home health aide services, depending on their plan of care.
Instead of a home health aide, a participant may choose to have a loved one provide their personal care services through a program called CDPAS.
CDPAS eligibility is determined by our staff, who conducts an assessment to determine the level of assistance with personal care and/or nursing services the participant needs.
*Spouses and designated representatives are not eligible to be personal assistants.
