How Do I Become A Personal Assistant?


We do not require special licenses or certifications to be employed by a consumer at CDChoices. To be eligible for employment, you must meet these five criteria:

  • You must be 18 years old
  • You must be legally eligible to work in the United States and have a qualifying photo ID
  • You cannot be the spouse or the custodial parent of the consumer who is hiring you
  • You must not have been excluded from working in Medicare, Medicaid or other federal health care programs
  • You must complete an initial and annual health assessment (as required by the New York State Department of Health)

It’s important to note that before a personal assistant can start working for a consumer at CDChoices, they’ll need to provide the consumer with pertinent information, sign a New York State Wage Notice, and complete a health assessment with PPD and immunizations.

Once you’re hired, it’s your consumer’s responsibility to help train you on the tasks that you’ll need to perform.
