Personal Care Services

Personal Care Services are medically necessary activities or tasks ordered by a physician, which enable people to meet their needs in their homes rather than on an inpatient or institutional basis. These services are normally provided in the individual's residence except in instances where the individual needs them provided in the workplace in order to obtain and/or retrain competitive employment.
