Our staff is available 24/7 and serves Middlesex County and the greater Metro West Boston area. We provide services in clients’ homes, in assisted living homes, hospitals and skilled care facilities. We provide both short-term and long-term respite care, as well as personal care and nursing services.

PRIVATE DUTY HOME CARE

Hourly Care 

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. PNPS specializes in extended daytime and overnight services, we require a minimum 6-hour commitment for our Hourly Care services.

Overnight Care 

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. 

Couples Care

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.)

LIVE-IN CARE

Professional Nursing Placement Services, Inc. has been successfully providing live-in care to clients for nearly 40 years. In fact, our company is one of the most experienced and qualified to offer this cost-effective service.

As a guest working in your home, our caregivers focus on keeping the client comfortable and safe. The priorities of our live-in caregivers are the client’s personal care, companionship and household chores.

If you or your loved one requires 24-hour full-time care for a period of time, PNPS provides a flexible, easy-to-start, easy-to-stop service, delivered by trained staff members. More than companionship, our live-in caregivers give clients and family members peace of mind, and the confidence clients need to remain at home.

 

HOSPICE CARE

PNPS offers hospice care to provide support, comfort and peace of mind to those clients who may be nearing the end of life. Our private hospice staff works to create an environment that is comfortable and peaceful for the client and family.
Our staff assists with personal care, medication management and respite care during those hours of the day or night when family members may not be available, providing compassion, reassurance and help when most needed.

COMPANION (WITH TRANSPORTATION)

Transportation
PNPS understands how difficult it may be for clients or their families to arrange companion services for your loved ones. PNPS employs experienced Companion staff who can facilitate safe and reliable door-to-door service to medical appointments as well as social events. We are not a livery service, however. Our Companions escort clients either in the client’s vehicle or their own, and remain to assist during the entire excursion away from home, never leaving them alone. Whether it’s a doctor’s appointment, a weekly trip to the grocery store, or a lunch date with friends, our Companions can assist at any time – seven days a week.

Our Companion services include personal assistance in and out of the car and into medical appointments, and can supply family members with essential details from the doctor’s consultation.

Discharge and Outpatient Services
Companions are available for facility discharges or intakes. Caregivers can help clients get into or out of hospitals, nursing facilities, clinics, dentist offices and other medical destinations.
