A Look at Private Duty Nursing Services in the Local Area

Just as growing older can allow for a more relaxed lifestyle, it can also present new obstacles and challenges. What once were easy tasks, like bathing, brushing your hair, or remembering to take your medication, have now become more difficult to achieve.
If this situation sounds familiar, you are not alone. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the population of people 65 years of age and older is projected to grow by 54% through the year 2020. Thanks to advances in science and medicine, the average life expectancy is longer and the need for healthcare or daily assistance continues to grow.

In many cases, older Americans prefer to live in the comfort of their own home. With a private duty nursing provider, you can get the assistance needed to maintain a safe, independent, and enjoyable lifestyle. In addition to providing personal care, private duty nurses and caregivers regularly perform a range of duties, including meal preparation and light housekeeping. This type of assistance in your home allows you to keep a level of independence that works for you and your loved ones.

Homecare is great option for daily living assistance, but if you or loved one needs a higher level of medical care or skilled treatment, a home healthcare agency can also provide nursing assistance. While working with your physician, an agency will develop a care plan that includes a staff of highly trained Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and Home Health Aides (HHAs) or Certified Nursing Aides (CNAs) to meet your medical needs. Clinical managers will continually supervise and evaluate your case to ensure that an uncompromising level of care is always provided to the patient.

Whatever your need, dependable and affordable services are always available. Flexible payment options can be arranged and in many cases, your insurance company will be accepted. You can also rest assured that a dependable agency will only work with the best healthcare professionals in the business. RNs, LPNs, and other Caregivers are trained, screened, and credentialed. A criminal background check is also required before any caregiver can go into someone’s home.
