Any individual acting as a Personal Representative must be screened by Mountain Pacific Quality Health and meet the standards set by the State of Montana. The PR is responsible for recruitment, hiring, training and managing of the Consumer’s personal care attendants. The PR must meet with the SDPAS Program Team and Mountain Pacific Quality Health when deemed necessary.
