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