As you get older, do you wonder if you will still be able to do the things you love such as: travel, attend concerts, plays or movies, go shopping, eat out, do crafts, feed your backyard birds, take drives to see the beautiful countryside, or visit with friends and neighbors?
You can do all of these things and more when you customize your care with private duty services from Oxford HealthCare. With private duty services, you are in control of your care—as much, or as little, as needed.
There are some exceptional home care programs available that are paid for through insurance benefits such as: Medicare, Medicaid, VA or private health insurance. These programs are based on need and have qualifiers that a person must meet in order to receive care. There are also guidelines that control the care you receive.
If you qualify for care through one of these programs, that is great. However, if you don’t qualify, or want more than they offer, you should consider private duty services.
To learn more about private duty services and how you can customize your care, please call and speak to one of our Care Coordinators. They will be happy to customize quality-of-life services just for you.
