Personal Care

​​​​​​​​​​Personal Care Services for Seniors

'Personal care.' It's a term we use to describe those delicate activities no one usually talks about: going to the bathroom, bathing, putting on undergarments.

When a loved one needs help with personal care activities, the situation can become awkward for everyone involved. Family caregivers may feel embarrassed helping a parent or grandparent use the bathroom. Your loved one may be a very modest person who doesn't want a family member helping with these highly personal activities.

Sensitive, Dignified Personal Care Services

Many seniors worry about losing their dignity along with their independence. Personal care assistance performed by a non-family member allows your loved one to maintain her dignity while receiving the help she needs to stay healthy and independent.

Our CAREGiversSM​ provide compassionate assistance with personal care. Our personal care services include tasks like:

  • Bathing
  • ​Toileting
  • Incontinence care
  • Personal hygiene
  • Dressing
  • Grooming
