Professional Caregivers

Overview

Through the Aurora at Home program, you’ll have access to professional caregivers including nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech therapists, social workers and home health aides – all in the comfort of your own home. Our team also includes infusion specialists like infusion nurses, infusion pharmacists and infusion dieticians, all of whom are experienced in meeting the needs of home infusion therapy patients.

Aurora at Home caregivers generally work between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., but we offer 24-hour coverage. If you experience a problem during the night, you can speak with a nurse over the phone. If the problem can't be fixed over the phone, we’ll send a nurse out to see you.
