Private Duty Services
Non reimbursable services


Sometimes someone you love just needs a little extra help to remain independent.  UniCare can provide that help.

 

 

Private Duty Aide

 

Under the supervision of a UniCare Registered Nurse or Therapist, Private Duty Aides provide the same patient support as Home Health Aides.  Our Private Duty Aides are ready to assist the patient in all daily living activities and exercise routines.  They can monitor patient vital signs and provide medication reminders.  Private Duty Aides complete the same specialized training as our Home Health Aides and must also pass a competency evaluation.

 

Homemakers

 

Homemakers provide services to those who would otherwise have difficulty remaining at home without some help. Homemakers are trained to assist with meal planning, preparation and light housekeeping (dusting, vacuuming, laundry).  Using the patient’s car, the homemaker can drive the patient to a physician appointment or shop for the patient’s needs.

 

Companions

 

A home bound patient often feels lonely. Companions provide opportunities for social interaction with the patient.  Our companions provide “companionable” activity such as game playing, letter writing and, of course, conversation. Companions are not trained to provide any hands-on care.
