PCA Services

  • Personal Care Attendant

Pride ‘N’ Living Home Care’s Personal care assistant service (PCA) provide routine health and personal care support and assistance with activities of daily living to patients with physical impairments or disabilities in private homes, nursing care facilities, and other residential settings.

Our Personal care assistants help clients with mobility restrictions to get out of bed, bathe, dress, and groom. They also provide some basic health-related services, such as checking the patient’s pulse rate, temperature, and respiration rate; helping with simple prescribed exercises; and assisting with medications administration. Our PCA’s are skilled communicators and may advise families and patients on nutrition, cleanliness, and may also provide light housekeeping and homemaking tasks.

Our PCA’s work exclusively with one client at a time, or have a number of various clients with long-term care needs, while others may primarily help discharge hospital patients who have relatively short-term needs.
