What is Private Duty & Live-In Care?
Private Duty & Live-In Care is an alternative to nursing home care that offers specialized medical and non-medical assistance to seniors and disabled individuals. Caregivers provide all types of care and assist with all functions of daily living, allowing their clients to live comfortably and safely at home. Care services cover personal activities of daily living that they wouldn't be able to complete without the help of a family member like dressing and bathing, and domestic tasks like meal preparation and light housekeeping. Caregivers are also trained for clients with specialized conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease, hospice, and end of life care.
