Private Duty Nursing
Medical Care in the Comfort of Your Home with Private Duty Nursing
Sometimes, your loved one needs more assistance than traditional in-home care services can provide. Comfort Keepers Ithaca is proud to offer private duty nursing so that your loved one can receive the medical care they need in the comfort of their own home. Our specially trained private duty nurses offer a viable solution for individuals who need medical attention but would prefer to stay in their own home over a stay in the hospital or a nursing home.
How Does Private Duty Nursing Work?
Our private duty nursing, just like all of our care services, is personalized to your loved one’s needs. Private duty nurses often work in conjunction with personal caregivers to provide clients with the complete care that they require—the nurse will take care of all medical needs while the caregiver makes sure that the client’s personal needs are fulfilled.
Our private duty nurses are licensed practical nurses (LPNs) or registered nurses (RNs), all trained in the particulars of home health care.
Private Duty Nursing for Senior Care
Our private duty nurses most commonly assist seniors with medical requirements that go beyond the scope of in-home caregivers. Some of the ways that a private duty nurse can assist in senior care are:
- Administering medications, such as pills, topical ointments, injections, inhalants, oxygen, etc.
- Providing personal medical care.
- Maintaining medical equipment cleanliness and client hygiene when using medical equipment.
- Working with client’s doctor and medical team to provide the exact care required.
