Self-directed Personal Care Assistance (PCA) Choice services are available to children and adults. Personal Care Assistance can help with the “activities of daily living” such as dressing, grooming, eating, bathing, transfers, mobility, positioning, and toileting for adults and children, as well as light housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation for adults.
Financial Management Services
As an FMS provider, we make it easy for our clients to use self-directed services. Accra’s Financial Management Services enable people with long-term care needs or disabilities to easily hire and employ caregivers under the Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) program or the Consumer Support Grant (CSG). We can help directly employ support workers and purchase other supports needed to continue living in the community.
Accra is a 245D licensed provider of respite, homemaker, Individual Community Living Support (ICLS) services, Individual Home Supports (IHS) without training, IHS with training, and night supervision services. For each 245D service, clients select a trusted, qualified worker suited for their needs, while for IHS with training, a qualified staff is matched to the client to meet their needs. In all services, an assigned 245D Accra Service Coordinator will work with the client and county case manager to set up and administer 245D Waivered Services.
Home Health Care Services
This service provides medical and health- related services to support day-to-day activities to people in their homes. We offer these supportive services to maintain the safety and security of our clients at home. Accra’s home health care options include professional nursing, home health aide, homemaker, and rehabilitation services. Accra offers these services in the Twin Cities metro area and select counties throughout the state.
Accra High Street House, located in Lake City, MN, offers a quaint assisted living community with 11 comfortable apartments. Payment options include private pay and Elderly waiver. 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 individualized mental health counseling and adult rehabilitative mental health services (ARMHS). Mental health counseling services are available to adults living in the Twin Cities metro area and Goodhue and St. Louis Counties. ARMHS are available to Hennepin, Ramsey and St. Louis County residents. ARMHS are rehabilitative services that enable clients to develop and enhance psychiatric stability, social competencies, personal and emotional adjustment, and independent living and community skills – when the symptoms of mental illness impair these abilities.

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.”
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.”
When we toured a different assisted living community, the walls were all white, and it didn’t have a warm feeling. But when we toured High Street House, Donald said he could see himself living here. I agreed and felt okay leaving our home knowing that we would be looked after.”
“All of the things that I wasn’t quite sure how to do, Accra helped me work into my care plan and then implement,” says Toni Grundstrom. “Accra’s PCA services have been integral for me to be able to live on my own.” Watch Toni’s interview.”
