SERVICES

PCA Services:

Process to receive PCA services:

1. Gloss RN and program supervisor go out to client’s home to do an initial intake assessment
2. The Gloss ID team meet to discuss the case & determine if Gloss will be able to meet the needs of that client
3. An informed decision is made
  • Activities of Daily Living:

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Health and Wellness:

1. Personal care, hygiene care, home support, companionship, special needs & behavioral supports (by psychologist), medication setup & reminders (per MANT), blood pressure checks (by RN only), nutritional support (by RN)

 

2. Gloss has a relationship with a psychologist that consults with the client and creates a behavior support plan specific to that client on the first visit.

 

3. Gloss has an outstanding Registered Nurse

a. Our RN is very compassionate, great at what she does, and is an asset to our company. Our in-house RN created our own MANT curriculum & does all of our MANT trainings, as well as, all our first aid trainings. She is also a CMA instructor and works at a local hospital.

 
 
 
  • Independence:
At Gloss, we understand our clients want to be as independent as they are physically & mentally able to be.  After all, that is why clients choose a PCA corporation instead of going to a facility…because they want to maintain their independence for as long as possible.  Some of the ways we assist them in maintaining their independence is:
 
1. Housing Assistance

a. Typically, this means subsidy housing.

 

b. Gloss has built a good rapport with certain apartment complexes.

 

2. Job Placement Assistance

a. Through LRS, Gloss provides job placement assistance to clients who are able and willing to work.
 
b. See Supported Employment page for more information
 
3. Continuing Education Assistance

a. Not only does Gloss assist them with the enrollment process, but we also print study materials & the workers help clients study to help client be more confident & successful when taking tests & during class participation.

 

4. Transportation Assistance

           a. If listed in plan of care, the DSW who is authorized to drive the client will chauffer the client to destination(s).  All DSWs authorized to drive clients                  are required to maintain a valid driver’s license & auto insurance, and are subject to annual motor vehicle screenings.

 

b. Non-emergency medical transportation is a separate service.  See transportation services page for more information.
