Private duty service allows individuals, who need personal care assistance to stay in the comfort and security of their own homes. This provides peace of mind knowing your caregiver is certified, supervised by a registered nurse and employed by the agency. Private duty services are supervised by a registered nurse and include but are not limited to assistance with bathing, skin care, shaving, oral, nail and hair care and the application of ace wraps, ted hose and non-sterile dressing changes. This service is available to everyone. You do not need to meet any insurance or Medicare/Medicaid requirements.
Private Duty Care is available to everyone on a self-pay basis. To ensure quality service and client satisfaction, an RN will perform a supervisory visit after 30 days at no additional cost, and thereafter as needed. Your services will be reviewed at this time to determine if you are happy with the performance of the aide and/or if updates are needed to the service contract.
Telemonitoring is a unit in your home that will electronically monitor your blood pressure, pulse, respirations, weight and oxygen level. The unit also reminds you to take your medications and maintain your prescribed diet. This information is relayed back to the Home Care office. Here it is evaluated by a registered nurse daily to ensure that your results are within safe limits.
