What is the Personal Care Attendant Program? Attendant services are provided for people 18 and older with functional loss of 2 or more limbs and who have the ability to hire and supervise an attendant. Services include assistance with personal care, housekeeping, shopping, travel, self-care procedures, meal preparation, and other daily activities. State and local funds are used by local organizations to provide services and programs that help maintain older persons in their own homes. Please contact the Department of Aging and Independent Living to determine whether there is a waiting list for services.
