The Pennsylvania Department of Long Term Living has created a program to allow family members or friends who are informally providing basic personal care assistance to be hired by a state approved provider home care agency. The caregiver must agree to meet the hiring standards of the agency and agree to attend training classes if appropriate.
In order to be paid for the care you provide, your care recipient must qualify and be approved through the state department of Long Term Living. The client must qualify both clinically and financially to be approved for services. The client’s primary care physician must also be in agreement and sign a document stating that the client is in need of personal care assistance. Our team can help you to set up an initial assessment interview appointment. The process does take some time so the sooner you get started the sooner you can start getting paid!
