Personal Care Services

Personal Care Management

Personal Care Management (PCM) services allow individuals with a permanent or chronic disability to live in their own residence or community with needed support by their Personal Care Attendant. Individuals are eligible if they receive MassHealth and need physical assistance in two areas of activities of daily living (ADLs).

ADLs include:

  • Mobility
  • Assisting with medications
  • Bathing or grooming
  • Dressing or undressing
  • Passive range of motion exercise
  • Eating
  • Toileting

The applicant participates in an initial assessment meeting, which determines their functional capabilities and need for assistance. Following the initial assessment, an evaluation will be conducted by a registered nurse and occupational therapist in the applicant’s home. The application and evaluation must be signed by the applicant's primary care physician and submitted to MassHealth for approval. 

Do you need help finding a personal care attendant? Rewarding Work is a valuable resource that helps people with disabilities connect with qualified Personal Care Assistants. The goal of Rewarding Work is to give people who need support with daily activities the choice and control in finding personal assistants.
