PCA Services – are a type of home care service that is designed for people who need help with day-to-day activities. PCA Services help people be more independent in their own homes and in the community. PCA Services are available to the elderly and individuals of all ages with special health care needs who are on Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare.

Homemaking Services – are general household activities provided by a trained homemaker, when a person is unable to manage the home or when the person regularly responsible for these activities is temporarily absent or unable to manage the home.

Skilled Nurse Visit (SNV) - Intermittent nursing services ordered by a physician for a recipient whose illness, injury, physical, or mental condition creates a need for the service. Services under the direction of a RN are provided in the recipient’s residence by an RN or LPN; and provided under a plan of care or service plan that specifies a level of care which the nurse is qualified to provide.

Private Duty Nursing (PDN) – Services are nursing services ordered by a physician, for a recipient whose illness, injury, physical or mental condition requires more individual care by a Registered (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) than can be provided in a single or twice daily nurse visit and requires greater skill than a Home Health Aide (HHA) or Personal Care Assistant (PCA) can provide.
