Personal care aides—also called caregivers and personal attendants—help clients with self-care and activities of daily living/tasks. Personal care aides perform tasks that are similar to those of home health aides. However, personal care aides cannot provide any skilled nursing services. They also provide social support and assistance that enable clients to regain minimum functioning in the community.
