Personal Care Aid

What is Personal Care Aide?

A trained caregiver who delivers non-medical assistance in the comfort of their home is known as a Personal care aide.

What are the benefits of personal care services?

There are a variety of benefits to choosing this type of in-home care over a nursing home or an assisted living facility.

  • The ability to stay at home
  • Low cost
  • Customized service
  • Enriched quality of life

The Ability to Stay at Home

Most senior citizens going through various conditions would choose to be able to live their life in their own space, especially if they are still able to obtain a level of companionship that personal care aides provide. Most of the time, having help with basic tasks can benefit the older person to live safely and in comfort at home.

Low Cost

By assigning a personal care aide you save both time and money. A nursing home would require a patient’s presence and the stay there would turn out to be costlier than the price you pay for a personal care aide that comes to you in the comfort of your home.

Customized Service

The Personal care attendants focus particularly on the complex needs of the client. As every patient is different, the needs and the situations differ as well. Few may need care for an hour while few care for 24 hours.

Enriched Quality of Life

Being in this industry for years we have analyzed our customer’s responses and found that personal care aide permits our patients to live life to the fullest and feel no less. Our caregivers encourage their Independence and form a close bond with the patients and their families.
