Personal Care Assistant

Personal Care Assistant

Personal care assistance (PCA) services provide assistance and support for persons with disabilities, living independently in the community. This includes the elderly and others with special health care needs. PCA services are provided in the recipient’s home or in the community when normal life activities take him/her outside the home.

Assessment for PCA Services

PCA services are participant-centered. Recipients must have an assessment for PCA services by an assessor through a lead agency (a county, tribal government, or managed care organization). During the assessment, the assessor determines if:

  • The recipient is able to direct his/her own care, or needs a responsible party(RP) to act on their behalf
  • A need for PCA services exists; or if PCA services are the appropriate service to meet the recipient’s assessed needs
