WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRIVATE DUTY HOME CARE & HOME HEALTH CARE?
The enormous pressures of caring for your loved one while concurrently running the demands of a full-time job are obstacles that almost 42 million Americans face on a day to day basic. If you’re a caregiver, you may ultimately find yourself searching to secure extra help; this may be confusing as you try to match accessible resources with the requirements of you and your loved one.
HOME HEALTH V. PRIVATE DUTY
Home health and private duty services are drastically different. Specialized home health care is provided for homebound patients that need “skilled care.” This care is provided by expert clinicians as well as nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists or other professionals who come to the patient’s home. Visits generally happen one to three times a week over a 60-day period and are usually taken care of by Medicare. Home care visits are to be coordinated as part of a specific plan of care.
Private duty offers help by completing tasks such as light housekeeping, meal preparation and companion services. The objective of private duty care is to make sure daily activities are finished safely and the client is relaxed in his or her home. Care is typically provided in periods of time and paid directly by the client or family members to the private duty company. Private duty care is normally for a long period of time and helps to preserve a client’s way of life at the comfort of their own home.
