Elderly and Disabled Adult Care

Elderly Disabled Adult/Long Term Personal Care (CCW/PCS) Services

With Arc of Acadiana’s personal care services, elderly clients who are disabled or suffer from the effects of aging or adults disabled through accident or illness can receive supportive services in the comfort of their own homes.

Community Choice Waiver (CCW) Program

Arc of Acadiana’s CCW Program offers services to people who have become disabled as a result of the natural aging process, stroke, or other illness or injury. Services are provided in the client’s home, or in the family’s home if the client is living with family, and include:

  • Assistance with Personal Hygiene
  • Maintaining a Clean Home Environment
  • Assistance with Daily Tasks
  • And More

Personal Care Services (PCS) Program

Arc of Acadiana’s PCS Program enhances the quality of life of CCWrecipients by providing assistance with the activities of daily living (ADL) and the instrumental activities of daily living (IADL).

ADLs are daily basic functions and include:

  • Bathing
  • Bowel  Bladder Management
  • Dressing
  • Eating
  • Functional Mobility

IADLs are not necessary for fundamental functioning, but are important for living independently in the community and include:

  • Housework
  • Managing Money
  • Taking Medication as Prescribed
  • Transportation Within the Community
  • Shopping

Through our Long Term PCS Program, we offer transportation and other services, including ADL assistance and some IADL support such as light housekeeping, preparing and storing meals, shopping, and medication reminders to people age 65 and older (or 21 and older for adults with disabilities) who meet additional eligibility requirements.
