Personal Care Services Help Get You Through Your Day
Everyday tasks that many take for granted, such as tying shoes or getting ready for bed, can become challenging for an aging family member or a person with a disability. You or your loved one can have personal, respectful and sensitive assistance from a home health aide* through our In-Home Personal Care Program.
With this customizable program, you choose the level of personal care service that works best for you, your budget and your lifestyle. You have many options that include:
- help with morning and evening routines such as getting in and out of bed
- dressing and grooming
- bathing and showering assistance
- assistance with using the restroom
- incontinence care
- managing your medications
- preparing and serving meals
- enjoying general companionship.
If you have a long-term care policy, please let us know. We are able to work with a variety of long-term care insurance plans. We also work with the VA to provide these services to veterans. Please call our in-home services manager for more information.
