Comfort Keepers private duty nursing provides your loved one with the professional one-on-one medical care they need in the comfort of their own home.
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — If your loved one is in need of care and their condition has worsened, a family caregiver or home health aide may not be enough anymore. Rather than transferring them to an assisted living facility or a nursing home, Comfort Keepers offers private duty nursing to give your loved one the proper care they need.
As a family, you often want your elderly sick loved one to be in the comfort of their own home during their senior years. While assisted living and nursing home facilities may offer a loved one around the clock care, they would not be in the comfort of their own home.
Comfort Keepers can help! With private duty nursing, your loved one can stay put in their own home, and receive professional healthcare from a Comfort Keepers licensed practical nurse (LPN) or registered nurse (RN).
What is private duty nursing?
Private duty nursing provides one-on-one medical care to a loved one in their own home or a facility. Contrasting from Comfort Keepers traditional in-home care services, private duty nursing offers higher level medical care to your loved one.
“89% of elderly people in America wish to age in the comfort of their own homes, regardless of what physical state they are in,” said Stephanie Howe, owner of multiple Comfort Keepers NJ locations. “Private duty nursing allows this to be possible regardless of health condition.”
The LPN or RN works in tandem with the primary caregiver who is providing personal care services. They simply come to further assist with in-depth medical care services the primary caregiver may not be trained to perform.
What medical tasks are provided with private duty nursing?
The Comfort Keepers’ LPN and RN private duty nurses are specially trained to perform a variety of duties. Some medical services provided include:
-Medication organization such as distributing pills into proper weekly pill box slots or dispensary machines
-Medication administration, which includes: oral, topical, injections, eye drops, eardrops, nebulizers, inhalers, and oxygen
-Personal medical care such as oral cavity suctioning, nail grooming, and bowel supervision
-Filling insulin syringes
-Measuring blood sugar results
-Interpreting physician sliding scale dosages
-Mixing insulin for future injections
-Hygiene maintenance for catheters and ostomy
-Training for family members in care
Private duty nursing provides all the services above while holding to the Comfort Keepers companionship standards. Every Comfort Keeper trained nurse or caregiver not only provides the medical needs for a loved one but also offers a friendly face and friendship for them. Comfort Keepers wants every person in their care to feel comfortable, safe and cared for.
Do I need to transport a private duty nurse too and from my home?
