Private duty home care is important to ensure the well-being of your loved one. Most seniors prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home rather than moving into a facility. Private duty home care ensures that they receive assistance with the tasks necessary for daily living while remaining safe. Medicare does not cover the costs associated with the services provided by private duty home care. Medicare covers Medical or skilled home visits by Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Medical Social Workers and Certified Nursing Assistants for bath visits for a specific amount of time depending on patient diagnosis.
