Private Duty

What is Private Duty Home Care?
Private duty home care is a service provided to elderly individuals who are in need of assistance with day-to-day activities. A private duty home caregiver visits your home or the home of your loved one and helps with activities such as meal preparation, housekeeping, and personal grooming and hygiene. A private duty home caregiver can also provide companionship for the elderly, as well as respite care to relieve family members who care for their loved ones on a regular basis. Private duty home caregivers make it possible for elderly individuals to stay home safely and enjoy the comfort and familiarity of a space with years of memories. Private duty home care also makes it possible to transport the elderly to places they wish to go or visit.
