Private Duty - Home Support Services

We all share concerns about our parents and loved ones as they age and are no longer able to live as safely and independently as they once were.

Penn Highlands Community Nurses offers Home Support Services, also commonly known as private duty services.

Our well-trained, compassionate personal care aides can help your parent, elderly relative or loved one with a physical disability or chronic illness remain safe in their homes.

As a caregiver, you may be stressed from the responsibilities of providing care or you may fear for a loved one’s safety. The goal of Penn Highlands Community Nurses Private Duty - Home Support Services is to help you maintain your loved one’s quality of life at home – keeping them safe and comfortable.

Our Personal Care Aides

  • Help with personal grooming like bathing, getting dressed, mouth care or hair care
  • Help with moving around safely and getting in and out of bed and shower
  • Medication reminders
  • Help a person with Alzheimer’s or dementia by grounding or orienting them
  • Help with errands like grocery shopping
  • Help prepare meals
  • Help with household chores like light housekeeping, dusting, vacuuming or doing laundry
  • Provide companionship and socialization so your loved one is not alone

If your loved one has a need for skilled care and does not qualify for Medicare-certified home health services for the homebound, we also offer the services of a licensed private-duty nurse to assist with ongoing medical needs like medication management and administration, injections, pedicures, catheter care, urine collection, IV therapy, enemas, dressing changes and more.

These services are provided in Bedford, Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson and McKean counties.

Services are provided on an as-needed, hourly basis. Whether your loved one is in need of regular injections or a companion to help them through the day, Penn Highlands Community Nurses Private Duty - Home Support Services can assist you in a variety of ways.

Fees are based on a reasonable hourly rate and may be paid by the client, long-term care insurance or by special government programs for those who qualify.

Our staff will help you explore all payment options. Call the office toll-free at 1-800-296-4065 to see how we can help!
