Independence and Support With Companionship:  Start Thriving At Home.

Research indicates that 10% to 43% of older adults struggle with depressive syndromes severe enough that they result in measurable functional impairment.[1] This can be due to feeling isolated, ill-equipped, unwell, or missing out on normal activities.

Hope and peace of mind lie at the heart of Personal Assistance Services (PAS). Peace of mind that daily activities are still possible and that a person’s most basic needs can be met without posing a burden on loved ones. Hope that you or your loved one can continue living a life you love, despite challenges related to functional ability or independence.

With our part-time or full-time senior care Personal Assistance Program, seniors and their families experience immediate relief that empower them to enjoy life again. Don’t wait until physical, emotional, or mental well-being begins to suffer. Call today and start thriving at home.

What Is
Personal Assistance?

Personal Care Assistance or PCA is a non-medical professional aide employed by a licensed agency to assist you or a loved one in your home with activities of daily living (ADLs). A Personal Care Assistant serves seniors, adults with disabilities, and clients with decreased mobility.

A PCA will interface with other types of caregivers and home health aides, such as a CNA, RN, Occupational Therapist, or Hospice provider, and ensure each client’s unique needs are met on every level.

When Is Personal Assistance Needed At Home?

The best time to bring in a personal assistant is when you or a loved one just needs a little extra help at home. If there are no complex medical needs that need to be addressed and personal hygiene is manageable, a personal assistant for elderly adults or those with disabilities may be the perfect fit. Here are a few guidelines to measure the need for personal assistance:

  • Inability to participate in hobbies or activities
  • Unable to make or keep essential appointments
  • Reduced abilities due to a history of stroke, falls, or illness
  • In need of assistance with basic household duties
    (pets, plants, chores, etc.)
  • Unable to use or manage devices or technology
  • In need of quality of life improvements
  • Would benefit from shopping and meal prep assistance
  • In need of respite care to relieve friends and family members
  • Requiring assistance with all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

Home Health Care vs. Personal Care Assistance (PCA): What’s The Difference?

Personal assistance is a subcategory of home health care that provides non-medical assistance. This service manages the personal matters in life that require attention but that seniors and adults with disabilities may find difficult to manage on their own.

Home health care providers offer a medical component to their services, like nursing care, physical therapy, wound care, and medication management.

Benefits of Hiring A Professional Personal Assistant Or Heavenly Caregiver

Comfort. Consistency. Ease. Working with a personal assistant can alleviate the strain that daily needs and responsibilities can put on older adults. It also reduces the burden on family members and friends who are invested in ensuring essential needs are met.

Older adults who receive care at home experience reduced depression prevalence (10–26% vs. 10-43%).[2] Those who do not take advantage of personal care, home health, or companionship services may experience social disconnection, feelings of isolation, suicidal ideation, and limited social interaction due to functional impairment, which is common among older adults.[3]

At Heavenly Care, our mission is to make a positive impact with every visit and ensure you or your loved one is thriving at home as much as possible. Finally, have the freedom to enjoy each day, one at a time, and create a life that is sustainable for you and your family.

In-home care vs. assisted living facilities: When do you need to make the switch?

This is a deeply personal decision that would be determined on a case-by-case basis. Each client and their family will have different needs, expectations, and capacities to assist, and this will affect this decision.

In most cases, everything from daily personal assistance, basic medical care, post-operative support, and even Hospice support can all be managed while still at home.

How do you choose personal assistants and caregivers?

Each caregiver is matched to a client via our HeavenlyMatchTM algorithm, which evaluates abilities, values, and personalities to determine a strong match.
