State Plan Personal Care is a Medicaid service that helps individuals, from children through aging adults, with daily living activities at home.
A personal care attendant helps the individual with things like bathing, grooming, getting in and out of bed, toileting, meals, eating, laundry tasks, shopping/errand tasks and light housekeeping. Skilled nursing services include assessment of need and development and oversight of a care plan.
