Private Duty Nursing Services

Access Nursing Services provides personalized care in the community or the comfort of your own home. From custodial care including assistance with activities of daily living provided by a Certified Nursing Assistant to technical nursing services provided by a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse, our Registered Nurse Supervisors will customize a care plan specifically for you or your loved one under the direction of a Physician. We’re experienced in providing quality care to pediatric, adult, and geriatric patients.

After discussing your needs, our Registered Nurse Supervisor will perform an assessment and develop a written Plan of Care specific to you and your family’s preferences. Then, nurses or nursing assistants are carefully selected to meet your needs and execute the plan. The Registered Nurse Supervisor will follow up with regular visits to supervise the care and adjust the plan as needed. These supervisory visits take place every 30–90 days or as regulations require. Each client is assigned a designated Care Coordinator. Your Care Coordinator is a valuable resource who will: monitor the client and caregiver relationship, assist with scheduling replacement caregivers as needed, and provide patient and family support.
