Your Well-being, Our Priority: Personalized Care Solutions

Personal Care

Personal Care

Caregiving for an older or disabled family member or friend can be physically and emotionally stressful for both persons involved. Although every situation is unique in some way, Choice Care-trained professionals have experience dealing with the type of problems you may now be facing. Personal Care Services can also allow family caregivers to take breaks to refresh themselves and maintain their health.

The earlier you obtain support and assistance, the better you will be able to cope over a long period and maintain your well-being. If you are a caregiver or need assistance yourself, take the positive step of seeking assistance now.

What Is Personal Care?

Personal Care offers in-home assistance with activities of daily living. This Program is designed to allow persons to be cared for in their homes rather than in a long-term care facility such as a group home or nursing home. The Personal Care Services Program is in keeping with the Choice Care at Home mission to empower persons to remain in their own homes and communities and to function independently for as long as possible.


If you or someone you care about requires help with eating, bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation, housekeeping, or similar tasks, this program can help.

To make a referral to this Program, please get in touch with the Choice Care at Home office nearest you and indicate your interest in Personal Care.


Choice Care at Home serves people widely varied in age and lifestyle. This assistance can be provided to persons who are elderly or have physical, intellectual, or developmental disabilities. Choice Care at Home serves both children and adults in need of daily living assistance.

You can be served if you meet the medical criteria for this Program, currently hold a West Virginia medical card (Medicaid), or are Medicaid eligible and are age two or above. Your medical condition will be assessed when Choice Care at Home has been notified of your interest in Personal Care. Medical need is based on your ability to care for yourself, not any particular diagnosis. And remember, you only need to call us. We will travel to you to conduct any needed paperwork and assessments.

Who Delivers this Service?

Registered Nurses and Personal Care Aides provide your Personal Care Services. These trained professionals have the experience and skills necessary to give you peace of mind as you or your loved ones are cared for at home. The Registered Nurse will conduct assessments, write plans for your care, and monitor the delivery of direct care services in your home. The Nurse will also serve as a resource person for you and your family. Choice Care at Home strives to ensure that you and your family actively participate in planning services. This allows you to get the services you need when you most need them. The Personal Care Aide will help you with the actual day-to-day tasks needed to keep you independent, such as cooking, bathing, grooming, and housekeeping.

Where Are Services Delivered?

Personal Care Services are provided to you right in your own home. This allows you and your family to enjoy privacy while receiving services from trained professionals. The Nurse will even travel to your home to conduct assessments and do periodic follow-ups.

Is there a Waiting List?

There is no waiting list for this Program. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you may begin receiving services immediately.
