Home care aide services are intended to enhance the capacity of consumers to attain or maintain their independence. Trained and supervised direct care workers provide services to consumers who, due to the absence, incapacity or limitations of the usual caretaker, are experiencing stress or crisis.
The purpose of this program is to reduce, prevent or delay inappropriate institutionalization of consumers and to preserve families through the provision of supportive services by direct care workers who have completed training and are professionally supervised. The direct care worker provides services for consumers by following a plan of care identifying assigned tasks.
