Look through our program descriptions below to discover all of the ways Accra is helping Minnesotans live full lives:
- PCA Choice
- Financial Management Services
- 245D Waivered Programs
- Home Health Care
- Assisted Living
- Mental Health
Personal Care Assistance
PCA Choice services are available to both children and adults with disabilities, chronic diseases, behavioral diagnoses and mental illness who need assistance with personal care in their home. These services are funded through government health care programs to help individuals who are unable to fully care for themselves, allowing 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
FMS enables individuals 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 individuals to create and manage their own budget plan, hire their own staff, and choose what services they receive.
245D Waivered Programs
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
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. Home Health Care options with Accra include professional nursing services, home health aide services, homemaker and rehabilitation services.
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.
