Recently the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders added Personal Care Assistant Services as a covered service. These services will allow for seniors enrolled in the program to receive hands-on assistance with their personal care needs from qualified staff through participating agencies. Previously, non-medical homemaker – companion agencies contracted with the Home Care Program would not be allowed to provide hands-on care. If necessary, clients would have to pay for those services privately or receive those services from a Licensed Home Health Agency. This is a positive step towards continuing support for helping Connecticut seniors to age in place. Assisted Living Services, Inc. is contracted with the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders to provide Homemaker Services, Live-in Companion Services, and now Personal Care Assistant Services.
