During National Nurses Week, let’s recognize the men and women who have chosen nursing as their profession. These dedicated individuals tend to be overlooked, but without them the medical community could not function.
Nurses touch lives on a personal level
Nurses can reach out to those who are in need of care and touch their lives on a personal level. Whether a patient is in a hospital, medical office, rehab facility, or in-home, a nurse can provide more than just comfort and care. Through a personal connection, a nurse can tap into their mindset and help them get through challenging situations. Nurses will try to provide comfort to a patient, even when there is no getting comfortable. They will ensure that a patient and his or her family know what the next steps are in treatment so the patient can make progress as quickly as possible.
Nurses have even been considered substitute family members. When you cannot be with a family member wherever they are, you can be comforted knowing that a nurse is there to care of your loved one.
The need for nurses continues to grow
As Baby Boomers continue to age and the healthcare field continues to grow, the need for nurses will continue to grow.
We have many nurses employed with us at Assisting Hands® Home Care. These men and women are kindhearted, thoughtful and hard-working. Their goal is to provide the best possible care to those in their charge. They continue to learn and grow, becoming better at what they do. Whether they are registered nurses, licensed practical nurses or certified nursing assistants, they provide outstanding home care to our clients that will improve the quality of their lives. As a result, they provide peace of mind for the families of our clients.
At Assisting Hands® Home Care, our goal is to give you a less stressful environment, while providing a safe and enjoyable experience for your loved one. Whether you need someone to be with your loved one during the day, in the evening or overnight we can accommodate your needs. You will sleep better knowing that your loved one isn’t home alone when they need help with medication, fall prevention, personal care, eating or other needs.
