PNPS caregivers serve as companions and helpers to our clients, and handle daily household chores including meal preparation, laundry, dishes and light housekeeping. All our staff members are thoroughly screened, trained, fully insured and bonded.
Our Nursing Team works with our clients, their families and their medical providers to develop a personalized plan to improve health and maintain independence. PNPS Home Care delivers hourly care at any time of the day or night. We require a minimum 4-hour commitment for hourly care services.
Our caregivers are qualified and experienced at providing this service, which enables you or a loved one the peace of mind needed to remain confidently at home. Overnight caregivers arrive during the evening, assist the client to bed, and are available during the night to respond to client needs.
Our caregivers are available to couples at a reduced rate. If a separate care plan is developed and provided to two residents, the fees for the second client are 25% of the cost of service for the first client.
Home Health Aide Training
PNPS has developed and implemented a thorough Home Health Aide (HHA) Training Curriculum to teach candidates the skills required to be a caregiver in the home or an assisted living facility. We train candidates to understand the home health care marketplace and prepare students to provide direct care to the geriatric population.
The curriculum consists of teaching the proper home care skills, including bathing, ambulation and transfer methods, and record any evidence of a client’s declining daily abilities. The training includes:
– 60 hours of classroom material
– 25 hours of clinical experience in an assisted living facility or private duty client environment
– 1 written final exam
In addition to personal care assistance, Home Health Aides are able to supervise a client’s ADLs (Activities of Daily Living: helping clients safely move from bed to chair, preparing nutritious meals, assisting with bathroom and toileting needs, maintaining clean and safe home environment, cleaning and changing bed linens, reminding clients to take medicine, helping with range of motion exercises, and handling other caregiving tasks that enable clients to stay at home and thrive.)
