Patty, a young woman recovering from a recent surgery, needed in-home care while her family had to go out of town for an extended period of time. The family contacted Physicians Choice Private Duty to construct a schedule using professional caregivers, along with family and friends, to take care of her until her family returned home.


Bill required substantial assistance while he lived in an assisted living facility. Still, he often left the facility on trips with his family. By employing Physicians Choice Private Duty, Bill was provided a caregiver to come along on each trip he took, making sure he’s safe. By providing a safety assessment/modification of his home and additional caregivers, Bill eventually was able to return to his home, where he remains today.


Carl, a 90-year-old man not interested in taking the traditional route of a skilled stay at a rehabilitation center, asked Physicians Choice Private Duty to create a safe plan for him to rehab at home. Physicians Choice Private Duty made his home safe, brought in Medicare certified skilled care — physical and occupational therapy — and provided him with 24-hour care. Within a month, Carl was walking with a cane and was soon back to living independently — all without having to set foot in a communal rehab facility.
