HOW WE HELP WITH PAS

We support the human resources activities for clients and their attendants including recruitment, background checks, drug testing, training and supervision, payroll, and quality assurance. We assist in determining a client’s eligibility for available state-funded programs and the amount of care approved, and we help to develop a pool of potential personal attendants, provide training for the attendants and emergency back-up attendants.
