Jennifer Gomes, RN, BSN, the owner of Assisting Hands Home Care® – Gilbert, graduated from the University of Hawaii in 1997 and has been practicing as a registered nurse since 2000. She began her career as a med-surge nurse, specializing in GI and trach care. She then went on to practice as a cardiac nurse certified in ACLS and BLS. During this time, her focus became patients with chest pains, MI, CABG, CHF, etc. It was her treatment of cardiac patients which motivated her to move on to learning more about geriatric care, and, at that time, she began working in the home health care industry.
How She Decided to Start Her Own Home Care Agency
In home health care, she was able to make connections with patients and become part of their families. She also saw that so many of the patients that she treated were on their own at home and in great need of help with personal care like medication reminders, bathing assistance, help with toileting, grooming, meal preparation, exercising, transfer assistance, etc. She also had many home care patients who had family members providing care for them who never got a break between work and caring for their loved ones. This motivated and inspired her to start her own home care agency; so that she could provide superior home care to clients who need that kind of home assistance, as well as a companion who can help them take care of their personal errands and mild housekeeping duties.
Why Assisting Hands Home Care
She chose to become a franchisee of Assisting Hands Home Care because they are family owned and operated and insist on keeping all branches close as part of their family. Her small island upbringing has given her a great love of this same notion – making everybody around her feel like ohana (family). She strives to develop close relationships and outstanding communication with all of her clients. Her passion is patient care which is reflected in the time she spends each and every day making sure that the needs are met for everybody around her. She works tirelessly and believes that going above and beyond for all clients is what home care is all about.
