DCAI Foundation

DCAI Foundation expands upon the current services offered by our parent company, DCAI, and provides additional programs and services that give individuals with disabilities the choice to maintain independence in their homes and communities. We envision an inclusive environment that values independence and self-determination to the fullest extent possible for persons of all abilities.

The DCAI Foundation In-Home Services Program is an Agency-driven model of personal care and homemaker services. Agency-driven means that DCAI Foundation employs the Home Care Aides and sets the schedules to deliver services to the Client. Clients are required to sign daily (if using paper timesheets) to verify the Home Care Aide was in the home and provided services.
