Private Duty Services
Sometimes someone you love just needs a little extra help to remain independent. Newton-Foster can provide that help.

Private Duty Aide
Under the supervision of a Newton-Foster Agency, Private Duty Aides assist the patients in all day living activities (personal hygiene, meal preparation, light housekeeping). They can provide medication reminders, safety monitoring and companionship for those who are temporarily or permanently home bound. Private duty aides complete specialized training and must pass a competence evaluation.

Homemakers provide services to those who would otherwise have difficulty remaining at home without some help. Homemakers are trained to monitor patient safety as well as assist with meal planning, preparation, shopping and light housekeeping (dusting, vacuuming, laundry). Homemakers are not trained to provide hands-on care.

A home bound patient often feels lonely. Companions provide opportunities for social interaction as well as means of monitoring patient safety. Our companions provide “companionable” activity such as game playing, letter writing and of course, conversation. Companions are not trained to provide any hands-on care.
