CDPAP caregivers may perform the same tasks as a Home Health Aide or Home Attendant. They are also permitted by CDPAP guidelines to perform certain skilled tasks that a Home Health Aide is restricted from assisting with due to their respective guidelines.
CDPAP Caregivers may assist with tasks such as:
Medication administration & injections
Checking pulse, temperature, respiratory rate, and blood pressure
Topical treatments & sterile wound care
Assisting with tube feeding (including changing and irrigating G-tubes)
Tracheostomy care (including suctioning)
Help with daily activities (such as personal hygiene and accompanying to doctors’ appointments).

1000s of families across NYC love the Special Touch CDPAP program ♥
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what current caregivers have to say…
Meet Pam… She went to the Brooklyn office and was signed up in 1 week and 3 days.
“Special Touch is one of the best among NYC agencies. They accept most insurances and will even help you apply for services. They know exactly what you need to do in order to qualify. I work in the CDPAP program, they helped my family apply and as long as I clock in and out, I get a weekly paycheck.”
Naomi has been enrolled in the CDPAP program for 5 years.
“This is the best agency in the tristate area. Special Touch Home Care is geared towards the well being of clients and their family members. Thank you from Naomi.”
Stephanie’s Mother was diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
“I highly recommend the Bronx office in 3rd Avenue with Vieri, Karina and Zulanny. They provide the best service, are very attentive & help with any questions.”
Angelina needed help taking care of her Aunt with Cerebral Palsy.
“The relief I got was like a weight being lifted off my chest.”
