Personal Assistant Program
The Home Services Program (HSP) offers individuals with disabilities, who are at risk of unnecessary institutionalization, the alternative of in-home assistance where home care doesn’t exceed the cost of a health care facility. HSP does provide an option which addresses needs and preferences which allow the individual to enhance his/her abilities and leads to a more satisfying life. NICIL conducts initial interviews of people interested in the position. To qualify for the Personal Assistant (PA) Registry list, you must be able to pass a criminal background check, be at least 18 years old, have a working phone number, and reliable transportation. Once these steps are completed, there is an orientation class with mandatory attendance in order to be to placed on our referral list.
Background Check Fee
A $15.00 fee* for a Background Check is required. Only those who have successfully passed the background check will be invited to the next upcoming PA class. Potential PA applicants who are unsuccessful on the background checks, failure to complete the application, or attend the orientation class, will not be placed on our Registry list. There will be no refunds.
