Attendants or patient caretakers (also called wardboys or aayas in a hospital setting) are non-medical professionals who assist in patient care. They are trained for activities of daily living, such as hygiene, mobility, and companionship. Nurses are experienced medical professionals who are trained to perform procedures or interventions required by many patients. If in doubt, talk to us to see if an attendant or a nurse is better suited for your in-home elder care needs.
We have both ICU-trained and non-ICU-trained nurses working with us. The requirements of the patient determine the kind of in-home nursing service needed, and there are significant differences in how much each service will cost. It's best to determine beforehand which nurse your patient needs, but feel free to reach out to us if you need help in making this decision.
