We have over 40 Years of Experience solving everyday family challenges.
In-home care is one of the greatest long-term needs for seniors with chronic illness or for those who are unable to attend to themselves. Private Duty is one option that may fit your loved one’s needs.
Private Duty home care is just a sub-set of general home care. Our caregivers can provide a broad range of services. Their goal is to provide whatever the senior and their family needs in order for them to remain independent in their own homes. Some services provided by private duty home caregivers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week include:
- Personal care: bathing / dressing, hygiene, transfers, and ambulation
- Homemakers, companions
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
- Caregivers trained for clients with specialized conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease, hospice, end of life or other needs
- Transportation for shopping, doctor’s visits or other needs
Private duty home care may differ from traditional home care because of the payment method. Also known as insurance-paid in-home services. With private duty paid in-home services, some patients pay for in-home services out of their own pocket, or from a long term care insurance policy. Additionally, there are a number of hybrid forms of payment methods including various combinations of the commonly used insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and Private Duty. Private Duty home care is a great way for your loved one to stay independent and receive professional care. Being looked after by a professional also inserts a new companion in your loved one’s life.
