Private Duty Nursing Complements Care At Home From A Home Health Aide
We provide the next level of private duty nursing services for your loved at home and reduce your daily worry and provide care at home that a home health aide cannot
Sometimes a family caregiver or home health aide just cannot meet the increasing medical needs of a loved one. Comfort Keepers in Columbia, SC, can help. Our specially-trained private duty nursing staff is ready to provide the level of care at home a loved one needs to stay safely at home rather than in a nursing facility or hospital.
What is Private Duty Nursing?
In contrast to Comfort Keepers' traditional elderly 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.
