PCA Choice services are available to both children and adults with disabilities, chronic diseases, behavioral diagnoses and mental illnesses who need assistance with personal care in their home. These services are funded through government health care programs to help people who are unable to fully care for themselves, enabling them to stay in their homes rather than institutional settings or hospitals. With PCA Choice, clients independently recruit, hire and train the PCAs who provide their care.
Financial Management Services
Financial Management Services (FMS) enable people who are on a waiver or looking for an alternative to the Personal Care Assistance program to have optimum control over their program funds through the Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) or Consumer Support Grant (CSG) programs. FMS enables people to create and manage their own budget plan, hire their own staff, and choose which services they receive.
Accra is a Basic 245D licensed provider. With each 245D waivered service, the person or family selects a trusted, qualified worker. Accra then assigns a 245D Service Coordinator to work with the client and their county case manager to set up and administer Basic 245D Waivered Services, while ensuring that all workers are properly trained.
Home Health Care Services
Accra offers medical and health-related services and assistance with day-to-day activities in the home, designed to maintain the safety and security of the client in the community. Accra primarily provides Home Health Care services to people requiring continuing care for chronic needs. These services are also sometimes offered on a short-term basis to people moving from a hospital or rehabilitation center back into their home.
Accra’s High Street House in Lake City offers a quaint assisted living community with comfortable apartments. Each resident at High Street House completes a detailed interview and assessment with a registered nurse to create a personalized plan, tailored for their specific needs, such as bathing, treatments and medication assistance. The High Street House is located in a quiet residential setting – just blocks from downtown Lake City – close to churches, parks and beautiful Lake Pepin.
Mental Health Services
Accra provides mental health counseling and adult rehabilitative mental health services (ARMHS) to residents of St. Louis County. ARMHS services help clients manage the symptoms of mental illness, develop independent living skills and lead a more fulfilling life at home. Supervised by mental health professionals, ARMHS practitioners teach clients how to connect with and leverage community resources and mental health services.

There are heroes among us
You may know them. They are members of the Accra family — our clients and their caregivers.
I was proud of the support I received from Accra. I used to tell friends that our team at Accra cares about my needs and what I need more than anyone else. I was so lucky to have good people on my side and I hope to find the same thing in Maryland.”
The best thing is that Accra has given me the opportunity to be the primary caregiver of my son. It brings me peace of mind knowing he is being taken care of properly between me and my son, James, as well as some added income.”
Everyone at Accra is friendly. They are real, they answer the phone and are knowledgeable. If I need something explained slowly, they do that for me. I feel that Accra knows their clients in a way that helps make me feel safe and secure. Each day I am confident that my care is handled safely and professionally.”
We’re very, very grateful and very mindful of what Accra’s done for us, potentially saved Kyler’s life. I can’t put a price on that. I can’t even tell you how grateful that I am for that help. It’s a peace of mind when you can go to sleep at night and know that he’s safe.”
