Personal Care Services
Personal Care services help people with personal needs while they live in the community. We work with adults with physical or developmental disabilities, and the elderly. Personal Care Specialists assist with personal care and hygiene needs as well as household duties, shopping, and transportation. We can provide more information on the types of Personal Care Services we offer.
Homemaking services can provide some assistance around this house to help someone live more independently. Homemaking services are designed to provide non medical assistance with routine household tasks like dishes, making beds, laundry, dusting, shopping and transportation. Ask us for more information on the Homemaking services we offer.
