Private Duty Care for Daily Support
Private Duty assists people who may require help with eating, dressing, bathing, and other housekeeping duties as a result of some physical limitation, and who may or may not have a skilled medical need. It is often requested by patients who prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home and may include assistance with eating, dressing, bathing or light housekeeping duties.
You can begin care without a doctor’s referral or insurance authorization; visits vary from two hours to 24-hour coverage daily. While most private duty care is an out-of-pocket expense, some services may be covered by insurance, supplementary insurance, or long-term care policies. Skilled Private Duty care can be provided following a hospital admission, support patients with chronic conditions, or for those who may require more care than the family is able to provide.
Private Duty Services may include:
- In-home visits by a Registered Nurse, Licensed Practical Nurse, Home Health Aide, or companion for personal care, wellness visits or check-ups
- 24/7 support
- Homemaker services such as laundry, housekeeping, shopping, errands
- Phone calls or visits
- Medication or appointment reminder calls or visits
- Social worker for counseling, evaluation, or referral
