Home health care is the major service PASCO provides to its consumers/clients. While home health includes Skilled Nursing, Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapy, the key service is Home Health Aide / CNA care. PASCO specializes in serving adults and children with severe disabilities needing assistance with activities of daily living (dressing, bathing, bowel/bladder care, etc). To the maximum extent feasible, PASCO tries to promote choices in selecting/rejecting Aides and taking on more responsibilities in directing their personal care.
The majority of PASCO’s scheduled clients who have severe disabilities live alone and utilize PASCO services two, three and sometimes four times a day, 365 days of the year.
