Job Description

A personal care attendant (PCA) is a person who is recruited and hired by a consumer to physically assist in performing Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). Consumers may hire multiple PCAs, as necessary, to meet their specific needs. The jobs are as varied as the consumers; each person has different needs and preferences, and the work typically evolves as the consumer and PCA get to know each other.
