Personal Care | Home Health Agency
Personal Care Assistance is a health care program that provides services to individuals with differing abilities and medical needs. The main focus of the program is to help promote the recipient's independence so they can remain in their homes and community.
Home and Community Based Services (245D) is a program that emphasizes the safety and wellness of the recipient through home management, socialization, and inclusion. We provide 245D services such as Homemaking, Companion Services, Personal Support, In-Home Support and Services, and Individualized Home Supports without Training.
Care plans are developed by our Qualified Professional Supervisor. Care plans will be based on the client's initial assessment for services. Our QPs also complete supervision visits every 90-120 days. Care plans can be revised as necessary according to the client's needs to ensure care is up to quality.
All information is confidential and cannot be shared without consent. Our agency has annual trainings to keep our employees informed about the importance of HIPPA laws and violations.
If services provided by the PCA are not up to quality or meeting the client's needs, the client has the option to change caregivers. We will provide another caregiver to the client as soon as possible. When a client needs to confirm a caregiver's work history, we will provide the client with that information as necessary.
In some cases (especially for new clients) , a doctor's referral is necessary. The doctor's referral should state why the individual needs PCA services.
