Personal Care Assistant
Private Duty Overview
Private duty home care is a service we provide to elderly individuals who are in need of assistance with day-to-day activities. A private duty personal care assistant visits their home or the home of a loved one and helps with activities such as meal preparation, housekeeping, and personal grooming and hygiene. A private duty home personal care assistant can also provide companionship for the elderly, as well as respite care to relieve family members who care for their loved ones on a regular basis. Private duty home caregivers make it possible for elderly individuals to stay home safely and enjoy the comfort and familiarity of a space with years of memories. Private duty home care also makes it possible to transport the elderly to places they wish to go or visit, and in some cases personal care assistants assist with therapy assignments provided by physical therapy services.
