Here’s a question we get asked a lot via Live Chat, “I need a home health aide for my loved one but they only have Medicare, not Medicaid. Can you help?”

The short answer is, “Yes, we can.”

True Care now offers Private Duty Nursing

Posted by True Care Staff in Insider News

True Care is happy to announce our new service: Private Duty Nursing.

Meet our Director of Private Duty Nursing, James Frand. James started as an EMT volunteer then worked for the 911 system and decided to go into the nursing track, as opposed to a paramedic, after that. He chose to continue on that path ever since acquiring a Master’s degree in Nursing and experience as an administrator and director of nursing. This gives him the unique ability to run both sides of the program; one being client advocacy and the other being the administrative side, which includes hiring our nurses and staffing our cases.

Success Stories: How CDPAP Helped a Mother and her Child

Posted by True Care Staff in Insider News

April is Autism Awareness Month and we'd like to share a special success story with you. Daria, True Care's CDPAP Program Manager, brought to our attention a case that she recently handled. It is a story about a single mother who is caring for her autistic son and came to us for help. Her child has been diagnosed with several mental health problems. She wanted to care for her child at home due to the fact that she had no one else to care for her child and no one who would fully be able to understand and manage her child's special needs. She came into our Brooklyn office asking about our Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) hoping to enroll her and her son to receive benefits.
