Under the Traditional PCA option, individuals receive more support from the provider agency. People on the Traditional PCA model also receive more frequent qualified professional or nurse visits so the agency can be sure services are meeting care plan goals.
Under Traditional PCA, the agency is responsible for:
- Hiring, training, supervising and scheduling
- Monitoring and evaluating PCA staff to ensure care plan goals are being met
- Developing a care plan to meet the goals identified in the nurse assessment
- Maintain back-up staffing in case of an emergency
Note: Under the Choice or Traditional Program you may hire a caregiver of your choosing.
