Personalized Private Duty Nursing in Plymouth, MI and the Surrounding Area
A home health aide from our team will work with you and your family to provide Private Duty Nursing services to your loved one in Plymouth, Canton, Westland, or a nearby city
Sometimes, a family caregiver just doesn't have the expertise to meet the increasing medical needs of a loved one. That's why Comfort Keepers has included Private Duty Nursing in 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. With the help of a caregiver, our home health aides will provide homemaker and personal care services to create complete peace of mind for everyone involved.
Why Would You Need 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 medical and non-medical care services is that private duty nurses are able to provide a higher level of care than non-medical caregivers. If the skilled care can be provided safely in the consumer's home, the purpose of private duty nursing is to provide continuous skilled nursing care to consumers with complex medical needs. Our goal is to provide the customized care needed by a client, all from one agency.
How A Home Health Aide Can Be Beneficial
