CNA Caregiver Program

Get Paid to Take Care of Your Loved One

Care for our loved ones is often best given by the people who really care about them: spouses, parents, siblings, relatives and friends. But this takes a lot of time and effort. The good news is, if you are currently caring for your loved one, it may be possible to get paid.
CPWD has a new program that pays for specialized training for family and friend caregivers of Medicaid-qualified consumers to become Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). We pay for your training, and then hire you as an employee so that we can pay you to continue to deliver the quality care you are giving to your loved one. Your training includes learning about personal care, taking vital signs, helping with mobility, and assisting other activities of daily living.

How it Works

  • CPWD pays for your training to become a CNA Caregiver
  • You get trained and become a skilled CNA Caregiver
  • As a CNA Caregiver, you become an employee of CPWD
  • You continue to provide assistance to your loved one
  • You get paid by CPWD for your caregiving
  • Families and relatives stay together

Who Qualifies

  • Parents
  • Relatives
  • Spouses
  • Non-related caregivers

Any family member or person, of any age, who has Medicaid can be served by this program. CPWD currently serves Boulder and Larimer Counties.
