You can be your child's paid Home Health Aide in Pennsylvania

Medicaid started allowing this during COVID and they have since got this extended now that the emergency is over.  Pay isn't great - I've been quoted $13-17 per hour but I'm sure this can be a game changer to many families.  The person I spoke with says they have gotten each parent authorized to provide 50 hours of services per week to their child.  Some agencies have a max of 40 hours per parent.

Contact your Medicaid provider to see what agencies in your area do this.  Parents need to be trained/certified and the training is free.

Thanks, we're going to look into this.

I saw this in my fb feed a few times and couldn't go back and find it, so I really appreciate you putting it here.
