Private Duty Nursing From Our Homecare Agency Can Support What A Home Health Aide Cannot
While a home health aide can provide non-medical based care, our homecare agency also has a team to support those with chronic conditions
Sometimes a family caregiver or home health aide just cannot meet the increasing medical needs of a loved one. Comfort Keepers of Fairfax, VA private duty nursing specialists can help. Our specially trained private duty nursing specialists provide the home nursing services a loved one needs to stay safely at home rather than in a nursing facility or hospital. Best of all, they can complement the non-medical personal care and companionship services of your industry-leading homecare agency.
What is Private Duty Nursing?
In contrast to Comfort Keepers' traditional in-home 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.Contact Us
