Personal Care Services Program

Personal Care Services (formerly Personal Care Assistance) provides support for about 2,000 Alaskan seniors and individuals with disabilities. PCS provide support related to an individual’s activities of daily living (i.e. bathing, dressing, eating) as well as instrumental activities of daily living (i.e. shopping, laundry, light housework). PCS is provided statewide in Alaska through private agencies. The administration of the PCS program is overseen by the PCS Unit of Senior and Disabilities Services, Department of Health.

  • Agency-Based PCS Program (ABPCA) - Consumers may receive services through an agency that oversees, manages and supervises their care. ABPCA has been operational for over 10 years.

  • Consumer-Directed PCS Program (CDPCA) - Each consumer may manage his or her own care by selecting, hiring, firing and supervising their own personal care assistant. The agency provides administrative support to the consumer and the personal care assistant. CDPCA became operational October 1, 2001.

    Both Agency-Based PCS and Consumer-Directed PCS services are available in most communities in Alaska.
