Personal Care Services

Personal Care Services provide needed assistance to individuals who are unable to complete personal care tasks alone. Personal Care Services may prevent or delay premature or inappropriate institutionalization, making it possible for individuals to continue living in their own homes or to return to their homes.

Covered Services

Personal Care Services may include assistance with the following tasks:

  • Personal hygiene
  • Bathing
  • Washing hair
  • Dressing
  • Grooming (i.e., combing hair and shaving)
  • Eating
  • Toilet Use

Service Providers

An individual who qualifies will receive Personal Care Services as approved in the individual’s care plan. The Division of Adult Services and Aging does not directly provide Homemaker Services, but contracts with local provider agencies to provide services.
