Private Duty

There’s no place like home. AW Health Care recognizes the importance of keeping clients in their homes, rather than sending them to a skilled nursing facility. Our personal home care program is designed to implement non-medical tasks to meet the clients’ physical needs.

Our home care aides provide a multitude of services for our clients, ranging from meal preparation and house cleaning to personal assistance and running errands. We are diligent in our staff and client pairings. We won’t put just anyone in the your home or the home of your loved ones.

Personal Home CareAll of our team members undergo a vigorous background check that includes random drug screening. We personally select your caregiver by meeting with you and your loved one so that we can gain a better understanding of your needs and pair you with a caregiver who compliments your lifestyle.

Who Pays for This?

Get paid to care for your loved one!  We can help you direct your own care. At AW Health Care, we empower our clients. That is why we offer the  Consumer Directed Services (CDS) program. CDS is available for Missouri Medicaid-eligible individuals with physical disabilities. This program allows individuals to direct their own personal assistance services at no cost to themselves. Our client becomes the employer and hires a personal assistant of his/her choice.

Personal assistants help you or your loved one with daily activities like housekeeping, laundry, cooking, personal care and transportation needed to keep you safe and comfortable in your home.

Through AW Health Care’s  private pay (or private duty) service, we offer clients companion care, homemaker services and nursing services in the comfort of your home. Our aides assist with a variety of services aimed to keep clients living in their homes.

We set up our clients with caregivers who fulfill their non-medical care needs and provide companionship. Supervisory visits are routine. We closely monitor the relationships between our clients and caregivers.

Let us customize a care plan for you or your loved one. Call us today for a free, on-site evaluation.
