Sometimes, a family caregiver just doesn’t have the expertise to meet the increasing medical needs of a loved one. That’s why Comfort Keepers has included Private Duty Nursing in our full list of elderly care services. Rather than moving to a nursing facility or hospital, the level of care and attention your loved one needs to stay safely at home will be provided by our professionally trained home health aides. With the help of a caregiver, our home health aides will provide homemaker and personal care services to create complete peace of mind for everyone involved.
Unlike our traditional home care services, we offer at Comfort Keepers, this type of care provides the one-on-one medical attention that your loved one may need in Kitchener-Waterloo. The difference between medical and non-medical care services is that private duty nurses are able to provide a higher level of care than non-medical caregivers. If the skilled care can be provided safely in the consumer’s home, the purpose of private duty nursing is to provide continuous skilled nursing care to consumers with complex medical needs. Our goal is to provide the customized care needed by a client, all from one agency.
Our home health aide team is made up of skilled licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs), that can perform the following medical tasks:
When it comes to nursing visits, a home health aide can provide hourly care for extended shifts, or be available to clients at all times of day and night, seven days a week. We collaborate with the client’s medical team and family to provide additional support in the form of at-home care.
