We provide the next level of personal home care with private duty nursing in Newmarket, ON
Sometimes a family caregiver just cannot meet the increasing medical needs of a loved one. Comfort Keepers of Newmarket can help. Our specially trained nurses provide the level of personal home care a loved one needs to stay safely at home rather than in a nursing facility or hospital.
What is Private Duty Nursing?
In contrast to our traditional personal home care services, private duty nursing provides one-on-one medical care to an individual in the home or a facility. Private nurses provide the higher level of care while working in tandem with the caregiver who is providing homemaking services. Our goal is to provide the customized care needed by a client, and all from one agency.
How We Can Help
Our skilled home health licensed/registered practical nurses (LPNs and RPNs) and registered nurses (RNs) can perform many private duty nursing medical tasks such as the following:
- Administering medications, such as oral and topical medications, eye and eardrops, injections, nebulizers, inhalants, and oxygen
- Providing personal medical care, including nail trimming, foot care, oral cavity suctioning, and bowel supervision
- Wound care
- Blood Samples
- Post Operative Care
- Filling insulin syringes, interpreting blood sugar results and physician-ordered sliding scale dosages, and drawing up and/or mixing insulin for future injections
- Maintaining ostomy and catheter hygiene
- Setting up medications in weekly pill boxes or automatic medication dispensing machines to help ensure medications are administered appropriately
- Care training for family members
Our private duty nursing staff is available to assist clients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We can arrange regular scheduled visits or on an as needed basis. Our personal home care staff works closely with the client’s medical team and family to provide extended support.
