Private duty caregivers provide an amazing difference in the quality of care for your loved one. These specialized health care providers serve patients of all ages in need of medical care, yet want to retain their independence. A private duty caregiver can offer you or your loved one top-quality medical care from the comfort of home or anywhere else you may need skilled care.
Private Duty Care provides activities of daily living within an individual’s home. These services are designed to eliminate the need for unnecessary institutionalization in a full-time skilled nursing facility by creating a safe living environment, fostering independence, and facilitating rehabilitation in the comfort of your own home. Services are available to youths and adults who make arrangements for individualized care and private payment for services.
Private Duty Care services do not require a doctor’s order. However, clients in a hospital or skilled nursing facility can request direct private care on their own to avoid being discharged to another care provider.
Private Duty Care services are available for 8-, 12-, or 24-hour shifts. Hourly services are also available for those needing less than an 8-hour shift.
Private Duty Care services can be paid by any person, company trust officer, or family member not covered by private insurance, workers’ compensation, or other options.
