The Chinese-American Planning Council Home Attendant Program, Inc. (CPCHAP) is one of the largest not-for-profit home care service agencies in New York City, licensed in 1998 by the NYS Department of Health as a Home Care Service Agency.  Under contract with the New York City Human Resources Administration from the outset, CPCHAP also contracts with many managed care organizations for the provision of Personal Care Services and Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program to Medicaid-eligible individuals.  CPCHAP serves about 3000 home care recipients and employs over 4,000 employees.

CPCHAP is well-respected for its ability to provide culturally and linguistically competent home care services for individuals who live in one of the five boroughs of New York City and who are medically disabled, elderly and/or physically disabled who might otherwise require institutionalization.  CPCHAP works with clients, their families, nurses, social workers and physicians in tailoring each plan of care. We provide services for individuals who speak Chinese, Spanish, English and Korean, as well as other languages. CPCHAP works with patients and their families to offer the care needed, ranging from a few hours each week to 24-hour care. 

CPCHAP is also entrusted to manage the Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), which offers even greater flexibility to individuals because CDPAP allows a consumer to hire and retain close relatives (son, daughter, siblings, cousins, grandchildren, grandparents, and parents for a consumer who is 21-years-old or above, etc), friends, neighbors, or virtually anyone (except a spouse) whom the consumer deems fit to care him or her.  Best of all, Personal Assistants who work under the CDPAP program enjoy competitive wage and excellent fringe benefits.

CPCHAP is an inclusive place where our clients/consumers and employees come from various ethnic, cultural, religious, or racial backgrounds.  We value and are tolerant of one another's views or beliefs.  Because of our tolerance and welcoming philosophy, we have grown steadily over the years as we have a lot of returning clients/consumer, many of whom refer other prospective clients/consumers to us.  We welcome anyone interested in receiving home care service or joining us as an employee to reach out to us.
