When a client needs assistance with personal care, an In-Home Aide can typically visit the client in their home twice weekly depending on their schedule availability and the client’s plan of care details.
Due to licensure requirements, clients must be able to lift their own body weight, and stand on their own feet in order to be eligible for personal care assistance.
