Private Duty Nursing for Seniors in Lubbock, TX and the Surrounding Area
Comfort Keepers private duty nursing provides advanced care for seniors living in Lubbock, TX
There may come a time when you, as the family caregiver, no longer have the medical training and skills needed to meet your loved one's growing medical needs. While it might be tempting to place them in a Lubbock, TX nursing home, or assisted living facility, a Comfort Keepers private duty nurse can help by taking on your loved one's advanced care needs. Our services are designed to help seniors continue living independently in their homes and stay out of nursing homes.
