What is a Private Duty Aide?
Private duty aides assist with the activities of daily living. Aides are trained by and work under Southern Comfort’s nursing staff. Private duty home care includes hands on care 24 hours a day and assists with needs like toileting, bathing, dressing, and grooming. Aides also offer home care services such as housekeeping, meal preparation, companionship and transportation.
While aides do not carry out nursing and other medical duties, their services are just as beneficial. Daily living assistance creates a more comfortable home environment for patients.
As much as possible, aides and patient assignments are consistent, so strong relationships can form. Aides have constant contact with the patient. This consistency allows aides track the patient’s health and note subtle changes that might require a nurse or doctor’s attention.
Does Medicare Cover Home Health Aide Services?
Medicare does not cover personal home health aides when the only service given is housekeeping or personal care services. Private insurance also does not cover Southern Comfort’s services. Southern Comfort accepts long term care insurance and works with Medicare agencies to fill in the gaps that Medicare does not cover.
At Southern Comfort, we are passionate about our mission of providing compassionate care. We’re dedicated to working with you to make sure you or your loved one receives the care they need. Our team will work with you to find the best solution and home health coverage for your needed services.
