We provide the next level of private duty nursing services for your loved as part of our selection of private home care options
Sometimes a family caregiver just cannot meet the increasing medical needs of a loved one. Comfort Keepers of State College, Altoona & Clearfield, PA can help with our range of private home care options for seniors. Our specially trained senior caregivers can assist your senior with their personal care, housekeeping, companionship and transportation needs. However, for those seniors with more extensive medical needs, our private duty nursing staff can compliment our caregivers by providing medical based support safely at home rather than in a nursing facility or hospital.
What is Private Duty Nursing?
In contrast to our 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. Home health nurses provide the higher level of care while working in tandem with the caregiver who is providing companion-homemaker services along with private home care services. Our goal is to provide the customized care needed by a client, all from one agency.Contact Us
