Personal care services help individuals remain safe, independent and engaged in leading enriched lives. It’s often the kind of in-home help that allows people to avoid moving out of their homes into a more expensive and less attractive setting.
This can include companionship and also assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Activities of daily living are routine activities that people do every day without needing assistance. The basic ADLs include eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring (walking) and continence. An individual’s ability to perform these ADLs is an important part of understanding the type of services that are needed. In most instances, these services are provided to seniors who may need a little extra help or in some instances more help like 24 hours 7 days a week or even a live-in arrangement.
