Personal Care Assistance
Personal Care Assistants (PCA) provide assistance and care to individuals with special needs including developmental disabilities, chronic health problems or mental health diagnoses. The services that a PCA provides may enable the individual to remain at home rather than in a group home or other environment.
Our program carefully matches each client with a trained PCA. Types of assistance provided by a PCA will vary based on individual need, but may include daily living and health-related tasks, supervision for health and safety, behavior redirection/intervention and assistance with participating in home and community settings.
We accept Medical Assistance (MA), TEFRA, HealthPartners, MEDICA, and private pay.
To qualify for our PCA services, an individual must:
- Be eligible for Medical Assistance (MA) or TEFRA
- Receive an assessment from a Public Health Nurse
- Live in Hennepin County
- Choose St. David's Center as the service provider
