PCA services are designed to be flexible and driven by you. Keep the following in mind. You, your responsible party, or your other providers (examples include your clinic doctor, hospital staff, or social worker) must request an initial assessment for PCA services. PCA providers cannot do this for you.
Do not ask your PCA to complete tasks not allowed by state law.
Do not ask your PCA to help or take care of others in your home.
Keep track of the hours of PCA services you have used.
Provide honest and accurate answers to assessor's questions.
