Private Duty Nursing
Private Duty Nursing services (LPN's & RN's) are available for patients of all ages who require personalized one-on-one care. These nurses are direct care providers who are paid on an hourly basis. Their skill levels and expertise vary according to their specialties. Each nurse works in collaboration with the patient's primary care physician and is knowledgeable in the administration of medications, checking blood sugar levels, providing wound care, suctioning, providing tracheotomy care, giving injections, monitoring changes in medical status, as well as following prescribed treatment protocols.
Visiting Nursing upon Request/As Needed
Registered Nurses are available to visit any patient who may request a
personalized health consultation. Our licensed professionals are highly trained and technically proficient to render care, treatment and services. Care plans are developed with input from the patient, caregiver, and/or family members, and we work closely with the primary physician and other members of the health care team. Services may include but are not limited to:
Nursing assessment and consultation
Individualized nursing care plans
Medical care planning with physicians and hospitals
Assessment and diet teaching
We can arrange for temporary or short-term relief (respite care) for the primary caregivers and family members who are responsible for caring for loved ones at home. These loved ones might be frail, functionally impaired, or disabled, have debilitating illnesses, and/or require long term care. Our goal is to provide intervention on an intermittent level to alleviate stress and overwhelming conditions that may be encountered by caretakers when dealing with prolonged illness. We will develop a plan of care to facilitate the appropriate treatment and services desired and work collaboratively with all members of the health care team to achieve optimum results.
Live In Services
Live in services are ideal for individuals with limited mobility who may be prone to falling. In addition, patients suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia or recovering from a debilitating illness, or those whose close family members live far away, may derive great benefit from this type of service.
We will work with caregivers and family members to arrange for 24-hour live
in services in the patient's home. Our carefully screened aides are highly
trained to provide the optimum level of care in the home. Our rates are
reasonable, and around the clock service offers many benefits to the
patients and loved ones.
Our companion services are available upon request for patients who may need to be accompanied to their medical appointments, social gatherings, daily walks, or religious services. Staff will assist with light housekeeping, meal preparation, and shopping, in addition to building rapport by interacting and conversing with the patient. This may involve reading, playing games (cards, scrabble, etc.), or other exercises. The goal is to assist the client in maintaining an optimal level of independence at home.
Personal Care Services (HHA/PCA)
Our personal care services help individuals who may be elderly, disabled, recovering, or chronically or terminally ill, who are in need of assistance with their activities of daily living and/or other support services. These individuals have elected to receive non-institutional care and remain at home. Depending on the level of care/treatment/services needed, our home health aides or personal care aides are available to provide the appropriate level of support and assistance.
Services provided include but are not limited to:
Personal care, grooming, assisting with activities of daily living, mobility
assistance, meal preparation, cooking, accompanying to medical appointments, light housekeeping/cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, errands, etc.
Making and changing the bed
Cleaning up bathroom and kitchen after use
