Anyone with a chronic illness, physical disability, cognitive impairment (dementia), or frailty as a result of aging, may need intermittent rehabilitative services by licensed professionals, such as:
- Registered Nurse
- Physical Therapist
- Speech Therapist
- Social Worker
However, most assistance is provided by non-professional personal aides who assist with the custodial activities of daily living such as walking, bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting, as well as homemaker services are used for help with daily chores, i.e. shopping, cooking, housekeeping, transportation, gardening and bill paying.
