Personal care services enable older persons who have physical impairments or a chronic health condition to age in place.
These homecare services include assistance with activities of daily living such as dressing and bathing; seniors who receive private or personal home care can preserve their independence and stay at home.
What are Personal Care Services?
One of the most popular types of senior home care is personal care. This sort of care generally includes a variety of tasks and activities meant to assure the safety, comfort, and well-being of those with chronic health issues or physical limitations.
Bathing an elderly person when they are unable to bathe themselves, or assisting someone to safely accomplish activities of daily living such as dressing themselves after surgery, are examples of personal care. Care professionals visit the house to help with toileting, grooming, feeding, transferring, and other tasks.
Having a care professional assist with Activities of Daily Living, or ADLs, is one of the cornerstones of healthy living. Dressing, grooming, and bathing are examples of duties that can be performed by an experienced care professional who will also provide mobility and transfer support.
Personal caregivers can offer home help with many different tasks, including errands, meal preparation, light housekeeping and medication reminders. Our caregivers also provide companionship to reduce the risk of senior isolation.
We are committed to providing excellent care for our clients, just as we would care for members of our own family.

Companion Care vs. Personal Care
When you need home care for an aging loved one, picking on the appropriate service can be difficult. Companion care services tend to focus on social needs, whereas personal care services stress physical needs.
When deciding on elder care, understanding the difference between companion and personal care is critical because they both give different benefits based on a client’s particular needs.
Home care companions may help with laundry, cooking a delicious meal that isn’t just leftovers from the night before, and errands such as grocery shopping. They also offer emotional support to those who are bereaved or struggling in their daily lives as a result of disease or disability.
We may recommend personal care services for a variety of reasons. Personal care is offered for persons who need direct physical assistance due to a chronic health condition that impairs their capacity to bathe, dress, feed themselves, and so on.
If your loved one struggles with these tasks but does not require assistance from another person to complete them successfully on his/her own, companion care may be more appropriate.
Home care provides companionship so the individual can enjoy life’s activities without needing constant supervision; this type of service also includes meal preparation and light housekeeping duties such as laundry if needed.
