Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Program – Agency-Based or Consumer-Directed Options

A state program that provides home care services to older adults and people with disabilities who live in their own home or community. Program participants can either receive services through an agency or they can chose the Consumer Directed PCA Program, where they manage their own services by selecting, hiring, and supervising their own home care worker, which could be a family member or friend (but not a spouse, legal guardian or sole Power of Attorney).
