About PCA Services:
PCA services support persons with disabilities including the young, elderly and others with special health care needs that are living independently in the community. Categories of service that PCA's and Homemakers are able to assist with include:
Redirection and intervention for behavior & safety
PCA services must be medically necessary, approved by a physician, in the recipient’s service plan and have prior authorization from DHS or a pre-paid health plan in the form of a Service Agreement. Additionally, PCA clients must be able to direct their own care, be knowledgeable about their health care needs and be able to communicate their needs effectively.

Respite Care Services:
Caring Heart PCA's respire care services provide caregivers with a much needed interval of rest or relief, but still allow the individual client to remain in the comfort of their own home. These short-term breaks can help to relieve stress and promote balance in caregivers' and family members' lives. It enables you to share the responsibility for caregiving while getting the needed support for both yourself and for your loved ones.
Our homemaker services are geared toward helping clients maintain a comfortable daily life.
