Personal Care Assistants provide hands-on care to maintain independence.

In Greater Hartford, CT: When you need a companion trained to help with the tasks of daily life.

You or your loved one want to live at home, but need help with everyday tasks like dressing or bathing. A personal care assistant provides hands-on care and light housekeeping, to help make it possible to live independently.

Many people are shocked to learn that there are no regulations or training requirements to use the title “personal care assistant.” Other agencies can send you someone with no training in critical tasks, such as transferring, bathing or lifting a patient.

All personal care assistants at A Caring Hand must have completed a Certified Nurse’s Aide or Home Health Aide training course. They come to you with experience and knowledge to help you or your loved one with:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Toileting
  • Moving around safely

They help maintain the home, ensure medications are taken, and provide transportation to appointments and shopping. Our personal care assistants also get in-service training to provide a higher level of help. Contact us to learn more.
