Why Nurse-Led Care is Important
The foundation of our approach is to provide nurse-led care for every single client. Why? Because we believe that a nurse-led home care team can go a long way toward helping your loved one retain their independence in a safe and healthy way.
In addition to spending time with your family to conduct an initial needs assessment, one of our Registered Nurses (RN) will create a preliminary plan of care and provide ongoing oversight to ensure that your loved one’s needs are being met — even as situations change or their health evolves.
Our caregivers work closely with our nurses to keep them informed about any changes to your loved one’s condition so we can reduce the likelihood of a fall or need for a hospital visit. Here are some other benefits of nurse-led care:
- They can provide services, resources and education for you and your loved one.
- They can answer medical questions and provide details about a variety of health conditions.
- They can help prevent (or identify) medication interactions.
- They can serve as consultants for your in-home caregivers.
We work hard to make sure every nurse has the tools they need to provide the best care and support for you and your loved one. This can include specialized home care training and continuing education to help them stay up-to-date on the latest best practices in the medical field.
