6. What is the difference between Home Health and Private Duty Nursing?
Home Health is medically driven and helps individuals who are recovering from an illness or an injury that makes it difficult to leave home. This skilled care is typically provided by registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, home health aides and medical social workers. Home Health is generally covered by Medicare.

Private Duty Nursing offers a broad range of long-term services to assist patients with their daily lives, from non-invasive medical and nursing care to activities of daily living. The goal of private duty nursing is to help patients remain independent as long as possible in their own home. Our services for private duty are available for long-term chronic, respite care and personal care. Private duty services require a physician order for care and insurance authorization for third party payment.
