Personal Care Services

Aging in place can be difficult for patients suffering from mild to moderate physical or mental decline. Personal care services are a great option to allow the elderly to age in place safely and comfortably.

What is Personal Care?

A personal caregiver assists the client with activities that require hands-on care, like dressing, grooming, or using the toilet. The presence of a caregiver provides peace of mind to the client and their family. Because of health conditions, physical disabilities, or simply old age, a person’s daily routine can become more difficult as time goes on.

  • Bathing and dressing assistance
  • Light housekeeping
  • Meal preparation
  • Running errands
  • Medication reminders
  • Encourage physical activity

Additional services may include:

  • Personal grooming like combing hair, shaving, and brushing teeth.
  • Toileting assistance – This includes assistance with sitting and standing at the toilet, changing adult briefs, and aiding in using a portable urinal.
  • Mobility assistance – The caregiver provides help with walking for clients who are unsteady on their feet.
  • Transfer assistance – We’ll help a client with decreased mobility to safely get in and out of bed, recliners, or wheelchairs.

Personal Caregivers Provide a Safe Environment

As our family members get older, their strength and mobility decline, and simple tasks are no longer easy – or even impossible to do on their own. Some activities may even be dangerous for older adults since the loss of strength and balance increases the person’s fall risk. Caregivers ensure that clients can continue to live in the comfort of their own homes during these challenges.
