Personalized Private Duty Nursing in Summerville, SC
We provide private duty nursing services to your loved one in Summerville, Ladson, Goose Creek, or a nearby city
A family caregiver may not always be qualified to handle a loved one's evolving medical demands. For this reason, Comfort Keepers has added Private Duty Nursing to our comprehensive selection of in-home care options. The degree of care and attention your loved one need to remain securely at home rather than being transferred to a nursing home or hospital is what our home health aides are properly trained to offer.
Our home health aides will offer homemaker and personal care services with the assistance of a caregiver to give everyone concerned total peace of mind. Call (843) 594-0297 to get started today!
Why Would You Need Private Duty Nursing?
Unlike the 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 Summerville, SC. 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 Nurse Can Be Beneficial
Our home health aide team is made up of skilled licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs), that can perform the following medical tasks:
- Setting up medications in weekly pill boxes or automatic medication dispensing machines to help ensure medications are administered appropriately
- Administrating medications, such as oral and topical medications, eye and eardrops, injections, nebulizers, inhalants, and oxygen
- Providing personal medical care, including nail trimming, oral cavity suctioning, and bowel supervision
