Private Duty Services

If you’re just home from the hospital or seeking an alternative to nursing home or assisted living placement, U.P. Private Duty Services can assist in maintaining your level of independence. There are so many reasons to remain in your own home as long as possible… U.P. Private Duty Services can help meet the varied needs of all age groups.

U.P. Private Duty Services works in partnership with U.P. Home Health and U.P. Hospice to meet all of your Home Health needs. We are the only agency in Marquette County that provides this unique continuum of care within a home setting. This affords the client and their family the convenience of accessing different levels of care without being discharged from one agency to another to receive needed services.

How to Arrange Service
U.P. Private Duty Services are easy to arrange. Whether you are in the hospital, the doctor’s office, or your very own living room, one telephone call is all it takes. And anyone can make a referral: yourself, community agencies, family doctor, clergy, relative or a friend.
