Home Care That Guarantees a Lasting Impact
You’re in Safe Hands
The personal care assistance program provides services to persons who need help with day-to-day activities to allow them be more independent in their own home. A personal care assistant is an individual trained to help clients with basic daily routines.
Service You Can Trust
Homemaking Services help a person manage general cleaning and household activities to stay safe at home and in the community.
A Personal Care Assistant (PCA) is a trained worker who helps people that need support to take care of their day-to-day activities and who are on a state program (Medical Assistance, waiver programs, or Alternative Care) though we also provide private home care. Personal assistance services help individuals live and work within their own communities. PCAs help people who need support to take care of daily living needs because of disease, a disabling condition, or complications related to aging.
For individuals on a state or county program, personal care assistance services must be deemed medically necessary as determined by an assessment from your county. The assessment must find that the person needs help to complete at least one of eight activities of daily living or exhibit Level 1 behavior.
The four categories of services that a person can receive assistance in are:
* Activities of Daily Living: eating, toileting, grooming, dressing, bathing, transferring (such as getting in and out of bed), mobility, and positioning
* Health-related functions, which, under state law, can be delegated or assigned by a licensed health care professional to be performed by a PCA
* Instrumental Activities of Daily Living: meal planning and preparation, managing finances, shopping for essential items, performing essential household chores, communication by telephone and other media, and participating in the community
* Redirection and intervention for behavior including observation and monitoring
If you are enrolled in Medical Assistance, a waiver program, or Alternative Care, you may be eligible to receive PCA services in Minnesota. Contact your county to find out more.
If you have reliable help already, Assurance Home Care, Inc. may be able to hire them and/or provide supplemental care. Contact us to find out.
