This is how it should be, except timing of care visits, even with an agency covering visits, as Direct Payments can be used, not only to employ your own PAs, but to instruct an agency of your choice, provided the hourly rate is agreed by Social Services, to provide your care. When having your Assessment of Needs the support plan should include all these areas. However, I do agree that employing your own PAs gives you some more freedom of choice, but then you are required to follow all the employment regulations as you are then an Individual Employer. May you always have the care you need.
