    Taxonomy Code: YO-8200.6400

    Individuals who assist older adults, people who are ill or people with disabilities to live in their own homes or in residential care facilities instead of in a health facility. Most personal care aides work with clients who need more extensive personal and home care than family or friends can provide. Some aides work with families in which a parent is incapacitated and small children need care. Others help discharged hospital patients who have relatively short-term needs. They provide housekeeping and routine personal care services. They clean clients' houses, do laundry and change bed linens. Aides may plan meals (including special diets), shop for food and cook. They may also help clients move from bed, bathe, dress and groom. Some accompany clients outside the home serving as a guide and companion.
