In-home care from a non-medical caregiver allows your loved one to get the help he or she needs without giving up independence. However, when a non-medical caregiver isn’t enough, Nursing Plus of Broward can help. Our Private Duty Nurses offer hospital-level, Skilled Nursing services to seniors where they want it- in the comfort and safety of their home, not a nursing facility or hospital.

Depending on the needs of each patient, our Private Duty Services are customized so seniors can receive all the care they need at home from one source. Our Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), therapists, and Home Health Aides offer a wide range of assistance to accommodate the healthcare needs of the elderly.

We work closely with the patient, their families, and their physicians to develop a comprehensive medical home care plan from one source. Our goal is to improve the quality of living and help family caregivers achieve a peace of mind.

Our advanced care professionals come to your home to provide hospital-level care, so you and your family are spared the necessity of leaving home for simple or complex clinical care needs. With this, family members are rest-assured their loved ones have well-qualified, specialized Nurses and Therapists giving them one-on-one medical care in a familiar, comfortable environment.

We’re also work on your schedule. All of our Private Duty Services can be provided short term, long-term, around-the-clock (24/7), in shifts, or on an hourly basis.

What Type of Care is Offered With Private Duty Services?

Private Duty Skilled Nursing Care

In-Home Care After a Surgery or Injury. While many seniors may require ongoing home care, others may need only temporary help while they heal from a traumatic injury or recover from surgery. After hospitalization, the home is often the best place to recover because it’s where patients feel the most comfortable and get the best rest. Seniors are also less vulnerable to viruses or infections that can be spread in a hospital setting.

Our RNs and LPNs can assist with the proper support so recovery is as quick and painless as possible, avoiding slow recoveries or re-admission to the hospital.

During recovery, your loved one will need help doing things they are unable to do for themselves – with pain management, wound care, preventing infections, and even performing basic tasks like cleaning and dressing.

Our registered nurses and licensed practical nurses can provide the necessary level of skilled nursing care to help ensure a successful and sustained recovery.

Care after injury or after a hospital stay:

  • Post operative monitoring
  • Medication administration, including intravenous infusions and/or IM or Subcutaneous injections
  • Wound care
  • Dressing changes
  • IV management
  • Caring for those with chronic and life threatening disorders
  • Activities of daily living

The same healing benefits derived from In-Home Skilled Nursing Care offers both comfort and protection in times of both Acute and Chronic Illness. Whether the care is needed for long term, intermittent, or short intervals, our Private Duty Skilled Nursing Care provides hospital-level professionalism without the hospital stay.

Managing a medical condition, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes, or a Cardiac Condition, including congestive heart failure, requires attentive monitoring, care, and instruction. When living with these conditions, you can often be helped by supportive treatment and training. During acute phases of these conditions, our Private Duty Nurses can be there to help you safely remain in your home by providing the quality nursing care needed for patients to maintain independence as well as keeping your MD updated to any pertinent changes.
