Personal Care Alternative Program – Living independently with 24 hour support.

The Personal Care Alternative Program helps a person with an intellectual or developmental disability live in his or her own home. Personal Care Alternative Program (PCA) clients are are self sufficient and have the desire to live very productive lives within their community. They do not let their disabilities stop them from living in their own apartment, working full time jobs, having their own checking and savings accounts, making friends, becoming integral community members, neighbors, coworkers and volunteers in areas of their interest. These individuals vote if they so desire and receive assistance from staff if needed.

Roundup Fellowship staff members are available for daily, weekly, or monthly support while providing training in daily living skills, money management, meal preparation, and community and safety skills. The goal of this program is to offer the client support so that he or she can have a quality life style in a typical neighborhood setting, taking advantage of what the community has to offer. PCA clients may need help with grocery shopping, menu planning or just need a friend to confide in. Assistance is a phone call away if they want to talk or have any emergencies that may arise.
