PCA Choice Service
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
Mon.-Thurs. | 8am to 4:30pm
Fri. | 8am to 4pm
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.
With PCA Choice, clients independently recruit, hire and train the PCAs who provide their care. The PCA Choice option gives them a greater level of responsibility in managing their care while Accra assists in handling the employment and management-related functions of their PCA. As a PCA Choice agency, Accra provides PCA services to Medical Assistance clients and clients receiving waivered services, but not to people seeking private pay.
Accra has more than 4,000 PCA Choice clients, making it our largest program.
With PCA Choice, Accra:
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.”
Contact your county or health plan to request an assessment for PCA services. An assessor will contact you to conduct an assessment, which will determine if you qualify to receive PCA services and if so, for how many hours per day. Tell the assessor at the time of the assessment that you want Accra to be your PCA Choice provider.
