Private Duty Home Health Care
Today more than ever, senior adults want to remain confident and comfortable in their own homes, as they grow older, recover from surgery or deal with a challenging health care issue. As a caregiver, when reviewing the long-term and short-term home care needs of a loved one, it’s important to understand the difference between private duty care and home health care. Home Care or Home Health Care is typically short-term care for transitioning patients from hospital to home and monitoring or treating any short term medical needs. Private Duty Nursing is a longer-term commitment for those needing more consistent, daily care.
Atlantic AllCare’s Private Duty Home Health Care services offer a broad range of long-term services to assist senior adults with their daily lives, from non-invasive medical and nursing care to bill paying and transportation services to meal preparation and companionship. The goal of a private duty caregiver is to provide whatever support a senior adult needs to remain independent as long as possible in their own home.
