What It Is

​The Personal Care Attendant Program helps severely physically disabled adults at risk of being institutionalized to live in their own homes and communities by subsidizing costs of personal attendant services.


Participants must be 18 or older, severely physically disabled with permanent or temporary recurring functional loss of two or more limbs, need at least 14 hours but no more than 40 hours of attendant care per week, be mentally capable of instructing and supervising attendants and be capable of preparing payroll and required employer tax statements.


A personal care attendant, hired by the physically disabled adult, helps with personal care, housekeeping, shopping, travel, self-care procedures, meal preparation and other day-to-day activities.
