Home living in PCA’s Domiciliary (‘Dom’) Care
Philadelphia Corporation for Aging’s (PCA’s) Domiciliary Care (Dom Care) program marks 40 years of service to consumers this year. Through the program, PCA matches adults, who are elderly and/or who may have physical or mental disabilities, with providers who are willing to share their home and provide meals, housekeeping and laundry assistance, arrange transportation to medical appointments, and administer medications and assist with personal hygiene as needed. “Most of all, they provide attention and support to consumers who otherwise would be living in a personal care home or other institutional setting,” according to Jean Janik, PCA director of community living options.
