Personal Care Services
Families of persons with intellectual or other developmental disabilities often provide the best natural supports for these individuals, but those family members need supports as well, so that the family unit remains happy, healthy, and connected.
CLASS Personal Care Services support families and provide customizable assistance to help children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who live in their natural or foster family home to reduce stress and improve the quality of family life.
Personal Care Services provide direct assistance or training in:
- Daily living skills
- Attendant care
- Assistance with medications
- Extension of therapies
- Recreational and leisure activities

How will Personal Care services benefit me or my loved one?
Personal Care services, or PCS, are one-on-one supports provided to an individual (child or adult) who lives in their family home. Personal Care services are intended to provide relief for the family and allow the individual to continue to reside in the home. Staff assistance is based on the needs identified in the individual’s Person-Centered Support Plan, but can include assistance in the activities of daily living, medications, accessing medical care, meal planning and preparation, and recreation and leisure activities.
Who is eligible for Personal Care Services?
Adult or minor individuals who live in their family home are eligible to receive Personal Care Services as long as the need for the service is defined in the individual’s Person-Centered Support Plan.
