Private Duty Home Care in Miami-Dade & Broward County
When your loved one needs assistance in the comfort of their own home due to chronic illness or age, in-home services is a sought-out option for many in need of long-term care. Private duty care is one of the options that may be a good fit for your loved one’s needs because it allows the elderly individual to stay independent in the comfort of their own home. Our home care caregivers provide support on a need-based and ongoing basis, which gives clients a peace of mind, knowing that they can stay at home in their familiar surroundings. We provide an experienced home aide who will go above the call of duty to provide services that your loved one needs to stay within their place of residence with comfort and ease.
What is Private Duty Care?
Private duty home care is a service provided to seniors in need of support with everyday activities in the comfort of their own home. We pair the elderly individual with a private duty home caregiver, who visits the home to assist with activities such as light meal preparation, housekeeping, errands and personal hygiene needs. These caregivers can also provide friendship to the seniors and much needed respite care to family members who typically care for their loved ones on an ongoing basis.
A distinctive aspect of private care is support for the individual in carrying out Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). These activities include personal hygiene, dressing, bathing, etc. The caregivers possess the necessary know-how to safely transfer the client in the process of these activities and offer mobility assistance.
This is the main difference between private duty care and home health care services, which includes skilled medical care provided in the home by a medical professional such as a nurse, physical therapist, or occupational therapist.
Private duty home caregivers allow the senior to safely live in their home and enjoy the independence of doing so. Private duty home care includes transportation services for the elderly to visit places they wish. We provide our clients with compassionate caregivers who attend carefully to each senior they care for. In the process, they foster deep, caring relationships for one another through ongoing conversations. These companionships often last for extended periods of time, as the caregiver and senior form a friendship and bond that becomes more familiar and comfortable with time. These companionships are important in helping to reduce the risk of senior isolation.
