Hi my name is Robert Merced and I am the President of Big Heart Home Care LLC in Tampa Florida. I started the process of becoming a provider for APD in 2014 and I can honestly say that it was not an easy process. From the very begining I have had to navigate through many, many, obstacles and sometimes becoming extremely overwhelmed with the entire process. I must confess that there were many times that I actually just wanted to give up, but fortunately I kept going and today almost 4 years later I am a provider with a licensed Group Home. During my very long journey, through trial and error I have learned many things and have a decent amount of understanding of how the process actually works. I don't claim to know everything but I know just enough to possibly answer some of your questions about becoming a provider.
