Private Duty Nursing Services: Support A Home Care Professional With Your Senior's Care At Home in Overland Park, KS and Surrounding Areas
When you need more than just a home caregiver to provide care at home for your loved one
Sometimes a family caregiver or home care professional just cannot meet the increasing medical needs of a loved one. Comfort Keepers of Overland Park, KS can help with our specially trained private duty nurses. Together, this team can provide the next level of care at home your loved one needs to stay safe in their familiar surroundings.
What is Private Duty Nursing?
In contrast to Comfort Keepers' traditional in-home care services, this type of nursing provides one-on-one medical care to an individual in the home or in a facility. Private duty nurses provide the higher level of care while working in tandem with the caregiver who is providing companion-homemaker services along with personal care services. Our goal is to provide the customized care needed by a client, all from one agency.
