Yes, You Can Have Private Duty Care & Palliative Care Together
At Comforcare we often get calls from families who ask if they can have private duty care while their loved one is receiving palliative care.
Palliative care is designed to be a partner and facilitator of whatever type of care a patient needs. This includes curative treatments, skilled nursing home health care and YES, private duty care. Palliative care addresses symptoms, relieves pain, and maximizes quality of life for people living with serious illness, providing another layer of help for those who may be receiving curative treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy.
Private duty care is the perfect partner for those receiving palliative care due to a serious or chronic disease. Caregivers offer personal care services, emotional support and companionship and ensure that you are as comfortable and safe as can be.
