Personal Assistance Services (PAS)

Personal assistance services are defined as support services necessary to allow individuals to remain in or return to their homes rather than to have to enter or stay in a nursing facility. IEC provides coordination services on Medicaid Waiver Programs including assessment, attendant management training, and provider registry. We can work with participants on their supervisory skills, as our participants will hire, supervise, and fire their own personal assistants.
