Managed Long Term Care
Medicaid recipients can qualify for long term home care through New York State’s system of care for the elderly and people with disabilities. Qualifying for this system involves a visit/telehealth visit by the Maximus nurse. The family then chooses a managed long term care company which will be responsible for all aspects of maintaining the health of the patient. The home care will be delivered by the licensed home care services agency, Caring Professionals. Caring Professionals can assist families through this entire process, and provide ongoing support to explain necessary paperwork, assessments and enrollment procedures:
Short Term Care
Medicare recipients may qualify for short term home care as well as skilled services after a medical episode. These are arranged by the discharge planner (social worker) in the hospital or rehab center. The CHHA (Certified Home Health Agency) has overall responsibility for all the services in the home, including occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, wound care and social work. The home care agency provides the home health aide (HHA) in coordination with the CHHA. Caring Professionals can assist families in navigating the discharge to the home, and ensuring that all necessary services are seamlessly provided.
Coordination with the CHHA Referral to Medicaid enrollment services if desired Referral to private pay home care services if desired
If you do not have Medicaid, you may still qualify for this free wrap around coverage. Our intake specialists can direct you to a quality Medicaid enrollment service which will not charge for its service.
Please note: Caring Professionals does not make decisions on application approvals nor does it determine hours of home care. We just deliver quality home care.
If you are determined as ineligible for Medicaid, then please get in touch to discuss how we can provide you with private pay quality home care.
New York State’s eligibility rules are still inclusive, and are designed to help seniors and people with disabilities avoid exhausting all their resources on health care.

Not very much. Both need current qualifications from New York State after a short training (approximately 75 hours) in an approved training program. A Personal Care Assistant (PCA) has less training than a Home Health Aide (HHA). An HHA may perform all the basic care services that a PCA does plus more. A Home Health Aide can work on PCA cases, but a PCA cannot work on cases specified for HHA.
The MLTC specifies which services are required by the patient-PCA services or HHA services. Both PCA’s and HHA’s are employed by Caring Professionals.
Our current job openings can be found here. Our Human Resources Department processes applications and hires. When applying in person you will need (as per New York State regulations) an active HHA or PCA certificate, a pre-employment physical and labs, a legal form of ID and social security card (no photocopies), and a direct deposit form or voided check.
We offer comprehensive benefits, including medical benefits, paid vacation, sick days, a flexible spending account, transportation benefits and union benefits. For a complete list, visit our careers page.
