Extra Care Private Duty

Extra Care Private Duty Nursing is owned and operated by Hospice of the Bluegrass, a national leader in palliative and hospice care, but you do not need to be a hospice patient to use our services.   Extra Care can assist while you recover from surgery, supervise your loved one with dementia, or run errands for a homebound family member.  Whatever the need, Extra Care Private Duty can be there.
