Managing personal care.
The PASP Service is a personal care assistance program that provides up to 40 hours per week of routine, non-medical personal care assistance to adults with permanent physical disabilities between the ages 18-70 who are employed, preparing for employment, attending school or involved in community volunteer work and who are able to self-direct their own services.
Personal assistants help with personal care tasks including, but not limited to: bathing, dressing, eating, grooming, preparing meals, shopping, light house keeping, driving or using public transportation.
The goal of this program is to support individuals with physical disabilities so that they can remain active in their community. The PASP offers participants choice, flexibility, control and the opportunity to manage their own personal care assistance services.
Eligibility is not income based, but there is a cost share based on income. The PASP is administered through County offices with oversight and funding provided by the Division of Disability Services.
