Description:

The PCA program is a MassHealth funded program that enables a person with a disability to hire attendants to assist with personal care activities in the home. It is a consumer-directed program that puts you in charge. We believe that no one can hire a better caregiver for yourself than YOU! Our skills trainers will provide you with the tools and resources necessary to recruit, hire, train, supervise, and manage those you hire. Unlike Home Health Aide Programs, the PCA Program is self-directed, giving you complete control of your care; not only do you select your own PCA, but you will also determine exactly how and when your care is delivered.



Description of AFC Program:

Adult Family Care (AFC), also known as Adult Foster Care, is a MassHealth funded community-based program for adults who need daily help with personal care and who cannot live alone safely. The individual requiring assistance lives in a home with a caregiver who receives a monthly stipend in return for providing the necessary care. United Cerebral Palsy of MetroBoston’s team of professionals, including an RN and a Care Manager, visit on a monthly basis to ensure that the caregiver has the proper tools and resources to successfully care for and meet the needs of the individual requiring support.
