If you are a Consumer (an Independent Recipient of Home Care Services - a Person with a Disability, a Senior or a Consumer Advocate) and you are searching for a PCA Candidate, you can distribute an outline of your search criteria (FOR FREE) to the PCA Candidates and the other members of the Consumer Directed Services email database by COMPLETING AND SUBMITTING THE FOLLOWING FORM.

It is my hope that this system will prove useful in your search for the "right" employee but as an independent employer you must agree to take full responsibility for any personal injury or loss of property that may result from the action or inaction of your employee. In addition, Consumer Directed Services can not condone the use of this service to establish an employment relationship that does not provide equal employment opportunities to all prospective employees regardless of their age, race, creed, color, national origin, sex, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or affectional preference. Nor can Consumer Directed Services condone employment situations that ignore child labor or minimum wage regulations.
