Personal Care Services

 

Personal care aides are companions and assist with the daily tasks of the mentally disabled, chronically ill or physically challenged clients, as well as hospice patients and those in various stages of rehabilitation or recovery. Aides might work at clients' homes, residential care or hospice facilities, adult day care centers, or senior centers.

 

They might visit several clients a day or be assigned to one specific client. Shifts can vary, but most personal care aides are expected to work nights, weekends, and holidays.
