Chapter 8: Requests Related to Live-in Personal Care Attendants

BHA allows Clients to have live-in Personal Care Attendants (“PCA”s) as an RA.16 Once a live-in PCA is approved and added to a Client’s household, BHA will approve the Client for an extra bedroom if:

  1. The additional bedroom is requested; and

  2. The additional bedroom is warranted based on the resulting household composition.

For example, the addition of a significant other as a PCA may not warrant an additional bedroom absent additional circumstances.
