The Personal Assistance Services Program (PASP) affords eligible permanently physically disabled adults the ability to hire and direct their own personal assistant to aid them with their activities of daily living.
Personal assistants help individuals with tasks such as light housekeeping, bathing, dressing, meal preparation, shopping, correspondence, mobility, driving and/or use of public transportation. Individuals may receive up to 40 hours per week depending on need.
Depending on income, some individuals pay no fee. Others pay a portion of the cost of service based on a sliding fee scale. The remaining cost is covered by the State of New Jersey, Department of Human Services.
