Our Director of Nursing in Athens

Providing RN oversight on every case from day one

Kathy McKissick, RN

How long have you been a Nurse? I have been an RN for over 35 years. What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®? My experience includes over 20 years in mid- to upper-level homecare management for Medicare certified home health agencies.  I started at the field level, with a caseload of patients, and was promoted to positions of increasing responsibility, including  multi-site/multi-state management experience as Regional Vice President of Operations for 2 different home health companies. What aspect of your job are you most passionate about? I am most passionate about helping to improve the quality of life for clients with dementia and their families.  Alzheimer’s and dementia not only rob our clients of their memories and abilities, they also rob families of the loved ones they once knew.  I especially enjoy teaching our CNA’s different ways to cope with and care for our clients with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. I provide A Higher Standard of Care to our BrightStar Care® clients by… Active listening.  We all want to be heard and understood and I strive to ensure that I’ve done just that in all my interactions with clients and their families. If you have questions about how RN oversight works at BrightStar Care of Athens / Greensboro, or if want to speak with our Director of Nursing, please call us at (678) 377-6985.
