Patients who require at-home care need more than just a caretaker: they need a companion. Personal care associate jobs fulfill both roles. By providing basic care and accompanying patients throughout the day, personal care associates ensure their patients maintain a high quality of life.
Personal care associates provide basic, everyday care to patients. This may include a variety of tasks, including providing housekeeping and laundry services, planning and preparing meals and accompanying patients on errands. They may assist with bathing, dressing, toileting and grooming tasks as well.

Beyond maintaining their patients’ environment and helping them with personal tasks, personal care associates provide companionship. They spend a lot of time with their patients and often develop close relationships with them.
