What is “Private Duty Home Care”?

Many people believe that taking care of loved ones is solely the responsibility of family members. However, this task can be overwhelming, especially for those with careers or children. For those who may not be able to provide the caregiver services their loved one needs, HomeCentris Personal Care offers private duty home care in Maryland’s Capital Area and the surrounding communities.

What Is Private Duty Home Care?

Private duty home care occurs when a professional caregiver provides assistance with the activities of daily living (“ADL”). This caregiver works privately with your family so you can develop a relationship with them. They visit your loved one’s home to provide personal home care services. During the initial evaluation, this caregiver will work with you and your loved one to determine which home care services may be best for you and your family.

These services range from personal hygiene care to light errands and chores.  Some examples of private duty care include:

  • Laundry and linen cleaning
  • Meal preparation
  • Light housekeeping
  • Simple errands, like grocery shopping and pharmacy runs
  • Showering and toileting assistance

These are generally activities that your loved one performs on a day-to-day basis. However, due to their age or medical condition, they may be unable to perform them independently.  Furthermore, because they are activities required throughout the day, it may be challenging for a loved one to tend to them on a regular basis. This is where a provider of private duty home care in Maryland’s Capital Area can assist.

How Private Duty Home Care Benefits Your Family

Home care or Personal Care offers many benefits for your entire family.  Firstly, the family member receiving the home care services will have a comprehensive, professional caretaker. This individual has experience and training to provide high-quality care services. Therefore, you can rest assured that your loved one is in good hands.

Secondly, a private duty caretaker can alleviate strain and stress on your family.  Although caring for a loved one can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, it’s also physically and emotionally taxing. This is especially true for those with other responsibilities, such as career obligations or children.  This stress can strain relationships and create unwanted tension. By leaving personal care services to a trained professional, you and your loved ones can spend time enjoying each other’s company.
