PCA or Individuals w/ PCAs - #117-T

We are interested in learning more about what it is like to help people with their basic daily activities in their homes and what it is like to get help with doing daily activities if you have a health problem or disability. As a small thank you for your time you'll be compensated with a $50 gift card.

Are You a PCA?
If you are paid to help people with their daily activities – such as getting out of bed, getting ready for the day, going to bed at night, preparing and eating meals, getting around their home, or taking medicines – because of health problems or disability, we would like to hear from you!

To volunteer for this project, you must:

Help people in their homes with doing basic daily activities
Be 18 years old or older
Speak English and live in the United States

Do You Pay a PCA?
If you pay for someone to help you do your daily activities – such as getting out of bed, getting ready for the day, going to bed at night, preparing and eating meals, getting around your home, or taking medicines – we would like to hear from you too!

To volunteer for this project, you must:

Pay for people to help you with doing basic daily activities
Need that help because of a health problem or disability that has lasted at least a year
Be between 45-70 years old; speak English and live in the United States

These interviews are being conducted for a research project at the Mongan Institute for Health Policy at Massachusetts General Hospital.
