Risk factors associated with the incidence of recipient injuries, bedsores and contractures, and health care use among aged and non-aged adult personal care recipients are investigated. Data are from a statewide survey of aged and non-aged adult personal assistance service (PAS) recipients in California's In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program. Outcomes among recipients using relatives as paid providers are compared with those of recipients having non-relatives as providers.
