Our Private Duty care is patient-centered and patient-driven. The goal is to help maintain a client’s ability to stay in their residence comfortably and offer a respite care to other caregivers.
Private Duty, unlike Home Health, provides skilled and non-skilled care. The HomeFirst Private Duty team consist of Registered Nurses (RN’s), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN’s), Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s), and Personal Care Attendants (PCA’s). In coordination with your medical doctor, we offer scheduled care that ranges from hourly care to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We service 24 counties in Middle Tennessee while working close with your family to ensure the best care regardless of your age or mental or physical status.
We accept select insurance payors and private pay.
