1. IN-HOME CAREGIVERS?
There comes a time in almost every person’s life when they can’t perform everyday tasks on their own. Some of those tasks may be very important for health and safety reasons. That’s when in-home caregivers can make the difference between the person’s being able to continuing to live at home instead of having to move to an assisted living facility or nursing home.
One of the things we hear frequently is, “We wish that we had known about you sooner!” Would you prefer to continue living at home? Well now you can, with help from in-home caregivers from Pathways Private Duty.
While there are many care options, a few of the most common benefits are:
Receive care in the comfort of home Provide an alternative to nursing home care Recover from an illness, accident or surgery
Manage a chronic illness in the comfort of home Recover from out-patient surgery with post operative care Catch problems early before they become a medical emergency
