Attendant Care Program

What is the Attendant Care Program?

The Attendant Care Program provides financial reimbursement to assist individuals with severe chronic or permanent physical disabilities who require attendant care services to direct their own care and select their own service providers. Reimbursement may be available for attendant care services that are provided in the home, school, workplace, or other community locations.

Who Can Benefit from this Program?

Eligible adults age 18 to 64 with severe chronic or severe physical disabilities.  Applicants must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Be self-employed or competitively employed with compensation;

  • Be actively seeking employment;

  • Be attending an institution of post secondary, higher education, or apprenticeship training program;

  • Be a resident of a nursing facility or similar institution who are seeking to transition into the community

  • Be at risk of placement in a nursing home, as certified by the attending physician, if attendant care services are not received in the community.
