What is Personal Care?

Personal care is assistance to an individual with their daily living activities. These services are routinely performed by Certified Nursing Assistants and/or Home Health Aides. Personal care is not only provided within a client's home. Personal care assistance can also be provided in a skilled nursing facility, hospital or nursing home.
