Personal care at C & K encompasses a range of health and social services that are delivered at home to recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill persons in need of medical, nursing, social or therapeutic treatment and/or assistance with the essential activities of daily living. Home care allows an individual to maintain or regain independence through skilled nursing, aid and therapy services.
Home health services provide an excellent, cost-effective way for a client to stay in their home as long as possible. Depending on the level of acuity and financial situation, people are able to stay in their home with assistance from home health agencies.
Our Personal Care Services Support You
Generally, home care is appropriate whenever a person prefers to stay at home, but needs ongoing care that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends. More and more older people, electing to live independent, non-institutionalized lives, are receiving home care services as their physical capabilities diminish. Younger adults who are disabled or recuperating from acute illness are choosing home care whenever possible. Chronically ill infants and children are receiving sophisticated medical treatment in their loving and secure home environments. Adults and children diagnosed with terminal illness also are being cared for at home, receiving compassionate care and maintaining dignity at the end of life.

Personal Care for All Needs
Personal care services are provided to patients and families who need assistance with promoting, maintaining, or restoring a patient's health and level of independence and minimizing the consequences and effects of injury, disability, and illness. Home health care agencies are often referred to as hospitals without walls, since technological advances allow them to pack the items needed for care and bring them into a patient's place of residence. Home care services can be used as either a form of long-term care and service provision for chronically ill persons (thereby avoiding institutionalization) or as a form of short-term care for those who have been discharged from hospitals following acute illness or surgery.
