Private Duty

Private Duty is a broad term that encompasses all types of in-home care. It includes custodial care, companion care, and live-in care. It also includes care provided by a nursing assistant, a nurse or another skilled professional, such as a physical therapist. Care is considered “private duty” when it is being paid for by a long-term care insurance policy or by the patient or his/her family. It can be short or long-term and is often requested by patients that prefer to stay in the comfort of their own homes, rather than in a nursing home. Private duty services range from companionship care to highly skilled nursing care, during periods ranging from a brief visit to 24 hours a day. Private Duty caregivers are often enlisted to perform light home management, errands, meal preparation, housekeeping, or transportation to the grocery store, pharmacy or doctor’s office. Medical or ‘skilled’ Private Duty offers care to those who require medically intensive care for long-term chronic conditions, or skilled nursing care following a hospital stay, or at the end of life.

Non-Medical Home Care, Custodial Care, Companion Care, Live-in Care

The terms “Non-Medical Home Care,” “Custodial Care” and “Companion Care” are all used to describe care provided at home by a non-professional. Caregivers that provide these types of care are not required to have any specific medical training. At Pavilion Medical Home Care and Staffing, all caregivers are required to have extensive experience providing care, including measuring vital signs, bathing, transferring patients safely from bed to chair and back, and reporting concerning symptoms or changes in behavior/function that may signal that the health condition of the patient has changed. “Non-medical,” “custodial’ or “companion care” are usually needed when someone is requiring companionship, a minimal amount of help with managing daily activities and/or to assure safety, such as in the case of someone who might be forgetting to turn off the stove.

Live-in Care

This type of care is provided when someone needs care around the clock. For safety reasons, live-in care is not right for everyone. If a patient is not able to call for help during the night, a live-in caregiver will not be appropriate. This type of caregiver will be sleeping at night and may not hear the patient trying to get up. This can result in a fall or serious injury. The alternative to “live-in” care is when the agency provides caregivers that are required to remain awake at all times. In these cases, the same caregiver will not spend the night, but will be substituted for a caregiver that is rested and prepared to stay awake through the night to provide assistance when needed.
