Help people live their lives for your career. Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) help the elderly, convalescents, or persons with disabilities with daily living activities at home or in a care facility. Your primary goal will be to make the residents you work with feel as comfortable as possible.

Typical duties performed at a place of residence may include:

  • Keeping house
  • Preparing meals
  • Assisting with hygienic tasks. 
  • Advise non-credited care facilities regarding nutrition, cleanliness, and household activities.
