We let you choose your caregiver...

How Does This Work?

Direct Personal Care works with the New York State Medicaid program that allows consumers to recruit, hire, and direct their own home care workers. One of the highlights of the program is that it allows consumers to hire family members and friends where they will be compensated to provide care for you.

Direct Personal Care is a Medicaid program, so your caregiver will be paid through Medicaid. (Unfortunately, Medicare is NOT enough under current government regulations.)

Suleman Abid

“I started Direct Personal Care when I learned about a way to empower families needing more care for their loved ones.

We worked with the state to become licensed to provide help to those that need us the most. Those are the ones that have a disability or aging seniors needing assistance with their activities of daily living can now self-direct their care. They can appoint the caregiver of their choice.

We now serve many counties in the New York area to quickly on-board consumers and their caregivers. We’re giving them the control of the quality care they deserve. 

When I know I can help, this is what makes me happy and give me fulfillment in life.”

    "Life is Great!"

    “I have had many caregivers in the past, but none will treat you better than family. I am so grateful with Direct Personal Care for helping me direct my own care and choosing my care provider. My daughter and her husband now spends more time with me and I couldn’t ask for anything more. Life is great!”

    "I Am Grateful"

    “I am grateful for Direct Personal Care for helping our family. I was diagnosed with Myotonic Dystrophy last year and I have seen a progressive decline in muscle strength in my hands and legs. Not to mention the inability to work it has hurt us financially. We were referred by our social worker to Direct Personal Care. They were able to assist me to select my son and daughter in-law as my caregiver. I now have the best care without worrying to pay out of pocket”
