If you or a loved one needs more help at home, private duty care may be the perfect solution. Private duty care allows a patient to stay at home but have a caregiver come offer assistance. Sun Tree Hospice works with the patient, family, and attending physician to develop a customized care plan. Each plan is unique to the needs of the patient and family. Private duty care services allow you to choose how much care is needed—from a few hours a week to 24-hour care.

What are the benefits of private duty care?

Those with private duty care have personal care providers who come in-home to assist with various day-to-day activities while allowing you the greatest independence. Our main focus is personal care—our staff helps the patient with baths, toileting, grooming, and other needs while putting your dignity top priority. We also provide companionship and help with other day-to-day activities such as running errands, preparing meals, grocery shopping, and light housekeeping. With our Sun Tree Hospice professionals and your physician, you can choose how much care is needed. Whether you only need someone for a few hours while a primary caregiver takes a break or you’re looking for more constant care, Sun Tree Hospice will design a care plan that works for you.
