Personal care is one of the most common types of in-home care. Generally, this type of care is meant for individuals with chronic health conditions, physical disabilities, or difficulties with strength, coordination, and mobility. Care will typically include a combination of tasks and activities, which are designed to ensure the individual’s safety, comfort, and well-being.
One of the most important aspects of personal home care (or private care) is assistance with Activities of Daily Living, also known as ADLs. These activities include things like dressing, personal grooming, bathing, and toileting. Personal caregivers have the skills and expertise required to provide assistance with these tasks, as well as similar tasks such as mobility and transfer assistance.
Personal caregivers can offer a helping hand with a number of other tasks, including assistance with errands, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, and other routine activities. Our caregivers also provide individuals with companionship and conversation, helping reduce the risks of senior isolation.
