Personal, or Private Duty Care

Personal Care services — a.k.a. Private Duty Care — offer specialized, non-medical assistance to seniors and disabled individuals. Caregivers assist with homemaking and personal activities, allowing their clients to live comfortably and safely at home.

Personal care services provide seniors and disabled individuals with compassionate assistance for activities of daily living, which may be difficult or unsafe for these individuals to perform on their own. Also referred to as private duty care, these services cover personal activities, like dressing and bathing, and homemaking tasks, like meal preparation and light housekeeping.

With private duty home care from Visiting Angels®, your loved one can remain in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible. We create a customized care plan for every client and we will carefully match your loved one with a caregiver who is uniquely qualified to provide care for their needs. Our services will give your loved one the support they deserve and give you the peace of mind you desperately need.

About Our Personal & Private Duty Home Care Services

Almost all seniors have a strong preference for aging in place. Elderly adults enjoy the comfort, familiarity, and independence of living at home in old age, even if they need help from others to make this possible. Many find that help with in-home personal care.

Visiting Angels offers private duty caregiver services through a collection of senior care programs that we call Life Care Navigation. We take pride in providing our clients with the care they need to age in place safely and comfortably. We tailor our services to each client’s unique needs and match seniors with compassionate, highly qualified caregivers. This way, Visiting Angels can provide your loved one with the highest quality care available.
