Personal Care

Quick Description

Personal care involves assistance with custodial or non-medical needs.

Full Description

Personal care is non-medical care and assistance. This is often needed to help an individual with activities of daily living. It can also include supervision for someone suffering from a severe cognitive impairment. 


Most health insurance plans do not cover custodial or personal care. These plans only cover acute or rehabilitation skilled care. Long-Term Care Insurance plans were designed to cover personal care services instead.
