Personal Care Services

Personal Care is classified as non-medical care where assistance with ADLs (Activities of Daily Living) is provided under the supervision of a registered nurse. 

Specifically ADLs refers to these types of services:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Transferring
  • Incontinence care
  • Feeding assistance
  • Ambulation assistance

ADLs (Activities of Daily Living), such as those listed above require additional training and cannot be performed by a Companion Caregiver. Employees who deliver Personal Care Services are also periodically supervised by a Registered RN. It is imperative that persons who are transferring, bathing, dressing or assisting persons with incontinence care have the proper training so that neither patient nor caregiver is injured or put in danger during the process of providing assistance.

 In additional to the specialized services listed above, a Personal Care Aid can also provide the following:

  • Housekeeping
  • Home organization assistance
  • Preparing meals
  • Running errands
  • Medication reminders
  • Transportation to and from appointments and other places
  • Accompanying to social activities
  • Household chores including doing laundry or dishes
  • Communicating with family members

Your specific care is determined by your needs and tailored to that. Please contact us, and let us help enhance your life.
