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.
A Personal Care Assistant (AKA Direct Support Worker) is the individual providing the PCA services to the recipient. There are four categories covered under PCA services. Tasks and duties under each category provided by the PCA are according to the recipient's needs.
A loved one can remain in their home as long as they receive assistance with their daily needs to help them become independent. A PCA could be the answer.
