Hillcrest rebrands private duty services as Hillcrest Caring Companions

Hillcrest Health Services is now offering its in-home personal care services, commonly referred to as private duty services, through Hillcrest Caring Companions.

“Under Hillcrest Home Care, we have been offering in-home personal care services in the Omaha area for more than a decade,” said Reggie Ripple, Vice President of Home & Community Services. “We feel the time has come to rename this specific type of care to more accurately describe the services offered and help clear up confusion among the public who is caring for aging loved ones.”

Over the years, Hillcrest’s private duty services have helped more than 1,000 aging adults remain safe at home. Through Hillcrest Caring Companions, Hillcrest will continue to assist seniors in the same way.

Hillcrest Caring Companions will provide companion services, such as socialization/friendship or grocery shopping, personal care services, such as bathing/ grooming or walking assistance, and specialized services, such as dementia care or overnight care.

Skilled home health, palliative care and telehealth will still be provided through Hillcrest Home Care.
