Personal Care Services

Non-Medical, Affordable In-Home Care Services

Personal care services, also known as private duty services, provide home visits that
do not require medical care. Private duty aides help by doing the meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, bathing, and companionship services. Private duty care is usually long-term, and it helps the client stay in their home setting.

Dove offers affordable in-home care services. A care schedule is coordinated that works best for the family. Rates depend on the care needed and the home location. Dove covers 50 miles from Superior, WI in the state of Wisconsin only.  Private duty care is not covered by Medicare, so there are no federal guidelines to meet in order to qualify. Some private insurances may cover this service. Veterans may also have this service covered. Dove will be able to find out if the V.A. covers private duty care. Dove proudly serves our Veterans.

Private Duty Nursing

This service is provided to individuals with complex medical needs. Following the orders of a physician, a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse will assist a patient to remain in their home.
