Private Duty/Personal Care Services

Private Duty Aides/Companion Care

Evercare Health Services provides Home Health Aides to individuals in need of companionship and support with activities of daily living (ADL’s). Our dedicated caregivers are trained in providing support for all activities associated with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s and IADL’s). Each caregiver is highly trained, screened and licensed by their home state that they provide Home Health Aide Services within.


Our caregivers provide assistance with the 6 primary ADL’s. The six ADLs are generally recognized as:

  • Walking, or otherwise getting around the home or outside. The technical term for this is “ambulating.”
  • Feeding, as in being able to get food from a plate into one’s mouth.
  • Dressing and grooming, as in selecting clothes, putting them on, and adequately managing one’s personal appearance
  • Toileting, which means getting to and from the toilet, using it appropriately, and cleaning oneself
  • Bathing, which means washing one’s face and body in the bath or shower
  • Transferring, which means being able to move from one body position to another. This includes being able to move from a bed to a chair, or into a wheelchair. This can also include the ability to stand up from a bed or chair in order to grasp a walker or other assistive device.

IADL’s – Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs)

Our caregivers provide assistance with the 7 primary IADL’s

IADL’s are the self-care tasks we usually learn as teenagers. They require more complex thinking skills, including organizational skills.

They include:

  • Managing finances, such as paying bills and managing financial assets
  • Managing transportation, either via driving or by organizing other means of transportation
  • Shopping and meal preparation. This covers everything required to get a meal on the table. It also covers shopping for clothing and other items required for daily life
  • Housecleaning and home maintenance. This means cleaning kitchens after eating, keeping one’s living space reasonably clean and tidy, laundry and keeping up with home maintenance
  • Managing communication, such as the telephone and mail
