Nurse to Home Los Angeles

Los Angeles | Orange County | San Diego | Bay Area

Do you have a loved one who is in need of nursing care but wants to continue residing at home? This trend of aging in place is not waning, as more and more people choose to avoid facilities. Hiring a private nurse to provide home care is the perfect solution.

About Nurse to Home Los Angeles

Private duty nurses are simply registered nurses (RN) who contract with the patient to provide personalized medical care. A private duty nurse is able to provide such care either within the patient’s home, while traveling with the patient, or anyplace nursing care is needed.

A private nurse is hand selected through an agency based on the specific medical needs of the patient. There are nurses that have specialized training and experience in treating a range of conditions. These include cancer care, post-operative care, diabetes care, mental health care, hospice care and more.

What Makes a Nurse-to-Home Scenario so Attractive?

When a loved one becomes sidelined with a chronic illness or disability, there are decisions to make. Chances are they would prefer to be treated within the comfort of their own home versus convalescing in a nursing facility. Consider some of the reasons why patients prefer a nurse to home situation:

  • Maintaining independence. While nursing homes and assisted living facilities provide important services, most people prefer to stay in their own home. This allows the patient to have more autonomy and freedom than they would experience in a facility.
  • Being surrounded by loved ones. Many patients resist moving into a facility where they might become lonely and depressed. Family support and having access to beloved pets, friends and neighbors are protective for maintaining mental health.
  • More personalized treatment. The quality of the care received matters. Whether it’s post-surgery, a chronic illness, or hospice care, home nursing offers tailored one-on-one care.
  • Convenience. It isn’t only the patient who benefits from having a private nurse caring for them. Having a nurse come to the home removes a great deal of stress on family members. Shuttling the loved one to doctor appointments, battling traffic, and searching for a parking space is greatly reduced.

Types of Care Services Provided by Private Nurses

Private in-home nursing services cover a wide range of health needs. While some patients may only need short-term nursing care following a hospital stay, others may need ongoing caregiving.

Some of the services provided by private home nurses include:

  • Post-surgical care. When family members aren’t able to get time off work to care for a loved one following surgery, a private nurse can step in. The nurse can watch for infection, dress surgical wounds, and provide ambulatory help after surgery.
  • Transitioning from hospital to home. A private nurse can assist in the discharge process at the hospital. They are able to obtain doctor’s post-op instructions, fill prescriptions, and assist in transporting the patient home.
  • Wellness checks and medication management. Nurses can stop by and check on a loved one who lives alone. The wellness visits include checking vital signs, conduct wound care and assessment, organize medications and dispense the drugs.
  • Cancer care. Cancer home care will depend on the type of cancer and the staging. A nurse can provide pain control and medication monitoring, wound care, IV treatments, monitor infection, and respond to emergency situations.
  • Chronic illness care. When a patient suffers from an ongoing illness, like diabetes, Parkinson’s, or Alzheimer’s, they require ongoing medical support. A private home nurse is scheduled regularly to provide a variety of medical interventions. 
  • Palliative care. Once a patient has reached a point in their illness that they no longer seek a cure, they will transition to home palliative care. A private nurse provides pain management, wound care, symptom management, breathing treatments, and emotional support. 
  • Hospice care. When a loved one enters the final phase of their journey, they enter hospice care. An in-home hospice care nurse focuses on providing comfort and pain management to offer optimal end-of-life support.
  • Caregiver respite. When the patient’s family members are the primary caregivers, they may reach a point where they need some rest. The private duty nurse steps in to relieve them of the caregiving duties for a few days.
