Personal care assistance

Personal care assistance program

This program provides services to people who need help with day-to-day activities to allow them be more independent in their own homes. A personal care assistant is trained to help with basic daily routines. A PCA may be able to help you if you have a physical, emotional, or mental disability, a chronic illness or an injury.
