Private Nursing Assistance

What is the difference between home health care and private duty services?

Private duty services are usually (but not always) non-medical in nature and do not require a referral from a physician. A client or family can request services directly and can decide how long and how frequently services are needed. There is no restriction on the clientís location - our personnel can go to individual homes, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities, and hospitals. Private duty services are not covered by Medicare, but some insurance policies do have provisions for this kind of service.

Why should a person choose Saad Healthcare aides over a private individual for assistance?
