Personal care refers to individualized care needs that support one’s activities of daily living. Services could include bathing, dressing, meal prep, light housekeeping, and companionship. Nursing care is offered by a trained medical professional, like a Registered Nurse or Licensed Nurse Assistant. It includes services like drawing blood for labs, providing injections, and remote monitoring. Nursing care services are ordered by the physician and are typically services that would not otherwise be covered by insurance, such as those listed.
Care is paid for by the individual or family of the individual who is receiving the services.
