Personal Care Caregivers

There are varying degrees of one-on-one care when you choose Agape Home Healthcare for Medicaid Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) and private duty care. As a licensed agency, we provide a broad range of services to meet our clients’ total care needs. While the descriptors below provide a brief overview of service for personal care, Agape also offers skilled nurses who are licensed to assist with more in-depth care needs. Our New Services team is available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have.

Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) & Personal Care Aide (PCA)

CNAs and PCAs provide personal, non-skilled, hands-on care for the client in addition to socialization and transportation. Respite care is also a common support requested when a spouse or significant other is the primary caregiver. Often times clients wish to prolong their independence in their own home, along with the autonomy they’re used to. Our caregivers, at every level, honor this request and assimilate to the home environment without interfering or taking charge.

Supportive Services

Physical Disability Support

Arthritis, physical disabilities, and age-related conditions are some of the few circumstances that prevent patients from caring for themselves. Our caregivers can assist you with daily tasks such as mobility, eating, exercising, and grooming.

Care for Dementia Patients

Our experienced and highly trained caregivers provide the highest quality of care to both patients and their families. Our goal is to help individuals and their loved ones live happy and fulfilling lives.
