Private Duty Services

Private Duty Service—My Home Connection is another option for an individual to comfortably be cared for in their own home with just a little help from qualified homecare professionals. My Home Connection offers a private pay service package specifically tailored to a client’s needs.

Program Components:
Services begin with an assessment by a professional care manager. The care manager develops a plan of care based on a client’s individual needs and choices. We help clients and their families evaluate care options with the goal of remaining in their home.

For the safety of our clients, a comprehensive background check is done on all employees. All employees of the program receive ongoing supervision by the program director and attend trainings annually. As employees of Care Central VNA & Hospice, workmen’s compensation and applicable taxes are paid by the agency for the employee, therefore relieving you of that responsibility.
