What is a PCA?
A Personal Care Assistant (PCA) is a person who performs and assists with routine tasks of daily living for persons with disabilities and special health needs. These are tasks the person would perform if able. In general, the role of the PCA is to assist a person to be as independent as possible. Common tasks include assisting clients with activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, grooming, hygiene, eating, mobility and related household tasks, and providing assistance with managing client's behaviors. While caring for clients, PCAs may be asked to provide transportation to appointments, activities or other essential errands.
A Chance To Grow also offers Waiver Services that include Homemaking and Respite Care. To learn more about our Home-Based Services, please call (612) 706-5535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What our clients say
"I saw the wealth of services they offered - not just PCA services - and it was clear they took a vested interest in all aspects of a child's care. The first time I came in, I picked up a list of symptoms they treat and was shocked to find that it perfectly described my daughter! No doctor or therapist had ever described my child in this way." - Sharon, PCA and RN
