The Attendant Care Program allows individuals to remain in their home and community rather than in an institution, and to receive assistance with carrying out activities of daily living, self-care, and mobility. An individual can receive assistance with services such as personal hygiene, transferring in and out of a wheelchair, meal preparation and eating, as well as household chores such as laundry and light cleaning.
The Attendant Care Program is designed to assure that the consumer achieves and maintains independence. The consumer hires, trains, manages, and if necessary, dismisses the personal care attendant. Training and/or assistance is available in any area of attendant care management the consumer requests.
