The nation’s private duty care and services community fulfills a unique and essential purpose in modern life. Private duty care provides critical, quality, home-based care, and living support services for individuals young and old, helping them live full, independent, and connected lives in the comfort of wherever they call home.

Recognizing the interconnected nature of private duty home care with other segments of home care, hospice, and the healthcare continuum; the Private Duty Homecare Association (PDHCA) transitioned in 2020 to become Private Duty Home Care at NAHC – a fully incorporated service line offering of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice.
