Personal Care Assistant Waiver (PCA)
This Medicaid Waiver program provides access to resources to hire assistants to help with the activities of daily living. This includes eating, bathing, dressing, transferring and toileting. You must have a significant need for hands-on assistance with at least two activities of daily living and be without access to family and community support to meet your needs. You must also be able to direct your own care and supervise private household employees, or have a conservator to do so.
