Personal Care Services & Private Duty Home Care

Personal care — or private care — is a specialized service that provides non-medical assistance to seniors and disabled individuals. Private duty caregivers assist with homemaking and personal activities, allowing seniors to remain at home living comfortably in a familiar place.

A private in-home caregiver can provide companionship for seniors as well as offer respite care for family members who care for their loved ones on a regular basis.

Private care services from Visiting Angels® make aging in place possible for countless American seniors. Our private care providers assist older adults with daily living tasks they may find difficult or dangerous to perform on their own. Personal and homemaking activities may include:

  • Dressing
  • Grooming
  • Hygiene
  • Bathing
  • Toileting
  • Mobility
  • Transference
  • Medication reminders
  • Meal planning
  • Meal preparation
  • Light housekeeping
  • Shopping
  • Errands
  • Monitoring
  • Companionship

With Visiting Angels, you will be comfortable and relieved that your loved one is receiving the care they need. We provide a custom care plan for every client, and we will carefully match your loved one with a uniquely qualified caregiver. That way, your loved one gets the care they deserve, and you can rest easy that they’re content, safe, and secure.

About Our Personal Care Services

Roughly 9 in 10 seniors want to age in place for as long as they possibly can. Unfortunately, physical difficulties and disabilities make this difficult for many elderly adults. But with personal care services from Visiting Angels, seniors can enjoy the comfort, familiarity, and independence of home for years to come.

To ensure your loved one receives the private care services he or she needs, Visiting Angels offers a collection of senior care programs that we call Life Care Navigation™. This allows us to tailor our services to each person’s unique needs, with a custom care plan for every client.

Our personal care services are provided to seniors who require assistance with activities of daily living. In addition to caring for elderly adults, our personal care providers also work with disabled individuals and those recovering from illness, injury, or a hospital stay. Through personal care, day-to-day life can be made safer, more comfortable, and more livable for these individuals.
