Personal care aides assist patients with self-care and everyday tasks as well as provide some clients with much needed companionship. Activities of daily life are essential functions to maintain general welfare. These activities include tasks such as feeding, walking, bathing, dressing, toileting, etc. If your loved one is having mobility issues or difficulty performing these duties by themselves, then it is time to seek an assisted living community. With the help of assisted living, your loved one will be able to thrive in life again.
