What Is Private Duty Home Care?


There are quite a few different services involved in the overall “Home Care Services” umbrella. Some of these services involve simple companionship and help around the house, some utilize physical therapy, and others offer more comprehensive medical care in the home. Often, our team will create a blend of these to ensure your elder loved ones are cared for in the best possible ways. In today’s article, we will examine private duty nursing and what it entails from Alliance Homecare in New York. We offer two main levels of care: Registered Nursing (RN) Care, and Critical Care Nursing. These both offer home nursing services, but their responsibilities differ depending on the client’s needs. Read on to learn more about these services or get in touch with our team today to find out how Alliance Homecare can help your relatives and loved ones with passionate, professional, and high-quality private duty nurses in NYC.

Registered Nursing (RN)

The skilled nursing care provided from RN support in the home is what most patients require when they need in-home private duty nursing care. During this care, our team members and nurses will work with the patient’s family, doctors, and other care providers to ensure that every need is taken care of on a daily basis. Some of these needs can include:

  • Diabetes management
  • Medication management
  • Palliative care
  • Oncology support
  • Post-surgical support and recovery
  • Physical therapy
  • Ostomy support
  • And more

In these general cases of private duty nursing care, our compassionate and caring nurses will utilize their excellent clinical skills to the benefit of the patient. This will enable them to effectively monitor changes, detect potential issues, and intervene to significantly improve the patient’s condition and reduce risks.

Critical Care Nursing

Critical care nursing from Alliance Homecare takes the standard nursing approach to the next level. While our critical care private duty nurses are able to handle all of the same issues as our RNs, when a client needs deeper care (like a private nurse for a cancer patient), they may need an even more hands-on approach to care. In this case, our critical care nurses will be able to help with further management of care including:

  • Cardio-pulminary support
  • IV support
  • Neurological support and recovery
  • Wound care management
  • Patient advocacy
  • And others

In most cases, critical care nursing staff will also be available on-site for longer periods and may require rotating shifts so the nurse on duty can always be trusted to perform any necessary procedures at the highest capacity.
