What is In-Home Personal Care?

In-Home Personal Care services are the hands-on help you need to stay in your own home longer.

Often referred to as Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) or Instrumental Activities of Daily Life (IADLs), they can provide enough assistance for individuals who require critical day-to-day tasks outside their ability without compromising a sense of independence and dignity often found at home.

A personal care service is any type that assists with everyday activities like:

  • brushing teeth,
  • dressing,
  • bathing,
  • grooming,
  • toileting, 
  • incontinence care,
  • shaving,
  • eating, and more.


Usually needed on an intermittent basis due to its nature, this may be all it takes for somebody whose needs exceed what family members could reasonably offer but don’t warrant assisted living facilities yet.

Private In-Home Personal Care Services like bathing, dressing, grooming, shaving, are available through Inglenook Senior Care. Call today to speak to our staff.

Who Provides Personal Care Services?

Typically, personal care services are more private and “personal”. There are typically 2 types of caregivers who provide these services:

Family Caregivers

Caregivers tend to be the family members who are closest in proximity and have access at any time. Usually, sons, daughters, and spouses take on personal care for an aging loved one. Sometimes this is challenging for adult children

Caregivers via a Home Care Agency like Inglenook Senior Care

Personal Care Agencies: agencies, such as Inglenook Senior Care, employ a number of personal care assistants who are all fully licensed, trained, and vetted. Our services do not replace family caregivers but provide supplemental assistance for personal care tasks.

Who Is Eligible for In-Home Personal Care Services?

More often than not, personal home care services are provided to the elderly and those with disabilities who may have just experienced injury or illness.

Personal care services can help seniors maintain their independence.

This type of service is not medical and unlike home health care, does not require a prescription or certification for the provider.

Personal care may be provided directly by caregivers with appropriate training in personal hygiene skills like bathing and dressing.


What are the Benefits of Personal Care at Home?

Aging in Place

Most seniors would prefer to be able to live out their lives in their own homes, particularly if they are still able to receive a level of care that personal care services provide.

Oftentimes, having help with simple tasks is enough for an elderly person who can’t perform them on his or her own—like cooking and cleaning—to stay safe and comfortable living at home for years before needing more intensive assistance from professional caregivers in assisted living.

Enhanced Quality of Life. 

Personal care services allow seniors to enjoy an excellent quality of life, thanks to their ability to live at home, maintain their independence and form a  bond with their caregiver.

Nearly 90 percent of people over age 65 want to stay in their home for as long as possible, and 80 percent believe their current residence is where they will always live. However, for older adults to age in place, their physical and service environment must be accommodating.
