Hiring a Private Family Nurse – What to Expect

Feb 02, 2024
Hiring a Private Family

A private family nurse can become an irreplaceable addition to your home, providing professional and educated everyday care.

Coming from a disciplined and medical background, a nurse can assist with the whole family, from a pregnant mother to elderly or unwell relatives.

A different role to domestic workers, our private family nurses offer qualified care that reaches over an array of different conditions.

Licensed in their home country, Housekeeping Co nurses are given full cultural awareness training and a care refresher once arriving in the UAE.

Experienced in taking care of all patients, they provide tailored support to you and your family’s needs.

It is incorrect to think that a family nurse should only be used when someone is unwell. When in fact, their knowledge and expertise can benefit and improve a family’s general health all year round.


How can they help in the home?

There are many responsibilities a private family nurse can carry out in the home. For example, if you are looking for specialised maternity care full-time, or an extra pair of qualified hands once the baby arrives, a private nurse is an ideal solution.

Offering advice and support to the parents, a private nurse can quickly notice if the health of either mother or baby appears to be declining and encourage them to seek further medical attention.

With many having cared for premature, unwell, or newborn infants, their healthcare education allows them to understand the exact needs of each baby and monitor them daily.

In addition, private nurses can also focus on the health and well-being of older children, acting as their carer and supervisor. Ensuring their diets are healthy and encouraging their development, nurses can also look after children with more complex needs, disabilities, or other conditions.

Adapting to each family’s specific routine and requirements, each of our private family nurses can communicate effectively and assist in establishing a positive and impactful relationship in the home.

Living-in full-time, their responsibilities can include care and supervision, monitoring general health, feeding, and bathing of infants, and even companionship and mobility for the elderly or unwell.


What tasks can they not carry out?

There are two tasks a private family nurse cannot complete:

  • Housekeeping Duties (cleaning)
  • Injections or IV care.
