That's why Comfort Keepers of Plymouth, MI has included Private Duty Nursing to our full list of at home care services. Our home health aides are professionally trained to provide the level of care and attention your loved one needs to stay safely at home rather than moving to a nursing facility or hospital.

What is Private Duty Nursing?
Unlike our traditional home care services, we offer at Comfort Keepers, this type of care provides the one-on-one medical attention that your loved one may need in Plymouth, MI. The difference between private duty nursing and non-medical home care services is that private duty nurses are able to provide a higher level of care then non-medical caregivers. Our goal is to provide the customized care needed by a client, all from one agency.
