Participant assistance and care services are provided to allow individuals with
intellectual/developmental disabilities to remain and live successfully in their own homes, function and
participate in their communities, and avoid institutionalization. PAC services support and enable the
individual in activities of daily living, self-care, and mobility with hands-on assistance, prompting,
reminders, support, and monitoring needed to ensure the health and safety, of the individual. A relative
of the individual may be a provider of PAC. The decision that a relative is the best choice of persons to
provide these services is a part of the person-centered planning process and is documented in the PCISP.
When the provider is a relative, there is an annual review by the IST to determine whether the
individual’s relative should continue to be the provider of PAC.
PAC services are available only under the FSW.
