Level I, II and III aide services are aimed at preventing deterioration of functional capacity, to prevent abuse, neglect and/or exploitation, and avoid premature institutional care by assisting individuals in maintaining themselves in their own homes as long as possible.
Personal care services must be provided by home care agencies licensed by the Division of Health Service Regulation. Some individuals may require personal care and home management assistance to be able to remain safely in their home settings.
