Senior Services at Wellspring Personal Care Assistance

Personal Care Assistance

Staying in our home as we age is the ideal for many of us. This is known as aging in place, and personal care assistance can help someone do just that.
Through personal care assistance with Wellspring Lutheran Services, private duty caregivers help with daily tasks while simultaneously serving as a companion and a family liaison. Whether the help is for you or a loved one, we offer individualized plans so help is right-sized to meet the need.

Why Choose Wellspring for Personal Care Assistance

Where our personal care assistance program stands out above the others is our caregiver selection process. We understand it can be difficult to entrust your home and personal care to another person, which is why we take the time to get to know you and your family, and then match you with a caregiver that we feel is the best fit. They’ll be there for you — providing the compassionate support, help and hope you can use to make each day its best.
