Private Duty Nursing
Private Duty home care organizations provide a broad range of services from skilled nursing care, home health aides, and homemakers. Their goal is to provide whatever the aged, ill, or disabled or their families need in order for their loved ones to remain independent where they most want to be - in their own home. Rehabilitive and support services for chronic illness may also be provided, along with a wide array of other services such as home monitoring, case management, specialty nursing programs including wound care, infusion, and behavioral health.
Who should apply:
Any organization which provides these services directly to consumers.
