PERSONAL CARE

THE SIX MAJOR ADL'S

THE SIX MAJOR ADL'S

Each patient has their own distinctive needs; therefore, the level and type of care for each patient might be different, and personalized. During an in-home care evaluation, a senior’s ability to perform major ADLs will be assessed. This assessment will identify what ADLs the senior is struggling with and the degree of support they will need.


“Personal care” refers specifically to support and/or supervision with ADLs. Our licensed in-home care professionals provide personal care support with ADLs—each of which play a vital role in maintaining a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle for seniors in need. 


Our homemaker care service is designed mainly to offer house chore support and companionship to our patients who are mostly healthy and prefer to continue independent at home. However, it can also include a range of non-medical services that help make a senior's life more manageable.


The role of our companion care staffs changes based on our patients’ needs. Companion care spans both the social and physical care of a senior or couple.

The goal of our companion care service is to:

  • Provide emotional support
  • Improve the quality of life of the senior
  • Provide companionship for the senior
