What are PCA (Personal Care Assistant) Services?
PCA Services are a type of Home Health Care Service that helps people in Minnesota with their non-medical health related needs. The goal of Personal Care Assistant Services as with other Home Care Services is to help people live independently in their own homes and in the community as opposed to a facility. PCA Services are available to individuals of all ages with special health care needs and are a paid benefit under Medical Assistance.
PCA Services help people with:
- Activities of Daily Living including eating, toileting, grooming, dressing, bathing, transferring, mobility, and positioning.
- Instrumental Activities of Daily Living including meal planning and preparation, managing money, shopping for essential items, performing essential household chores, communicating by telephone and other media and getting around and participating in the community.
- Health Related Functions such as range of motion exercises, seizure intervention, or ventilator suctioning; and
- Redirection and intervention for behavior including observation and monitoring.
Who can get PCA Services?
PCA Services are available for free to those that qualify for Medical Assistance and need help. If you think you may qualify, we can help you with the necessary paperwork to determine eligibility. We will then send for a PCA a assessment and a Nurse from your county will determine how many hours per week you need.
How do I Start PCA Services?
Once eligibility is determined, we will provide you with the contact number to the person from your County that will send in for a referral for a PCA Assessment. A Nurse from your county will contact you to set up an appointment to come to your home. She will then determine how many hours per week you will receive. Once your PCA's background study is cleared, PCA services begin and your PCA starts getting paid! It's that easy!
