Know your options.

What is the difference between home care, private duty care, and hospice?

  • Home care is typically for patients transitioning from hospital to home, or who are recovering after a serious illness or injury. Home care requires a physician order.
  • Private duty care is typically a longer commitment for those needing more consistent, daily care. Private duty care does not need to be ordered by a physician.
  • Hospice provides care for those diagnosed with end-stage terminal illness. Hospice care requires a physician order.
