Communities of Care is accepting new clients for home care nursing in the Twin Cities; in fact, we’ve never stopped. We have been providing home care nursing for pediatrics and adults since 1999!
This is a challenging era in home care: we have a nursing shortage, we are desperately underfunded, and many insurance plans do not include extended hours nursing as a benefit. Yet, we are working hard for our amazing clients and staffing them!
Some nursing agencies may not be accepting new clients, but we are! We welcome new clients who align with our values! We are honest with our clients about staffing shortages, and we find creative ways to successfully staff our cases.
If you are looking for a new extended hours nursing agency, give us a call. We would love to talk to you! Watch our video to learn more about us and our values.
I’m Joan, and I know home care from the inside out.
I’ve navigated my daughter through 24/7 home care nursing and managed her PCA’s. I’ve helped my parents move into (and out of) assisted living, Medicare episodes, skilled nurse visits, home health aids, and PCAs. Sandwiched in all of that, I’ve helped coordinate home care equipment and supplies, physical therapists, occupational therapists, county workers, and medications (oh, the medications). I know emergency departments, children’s hospitals, cancer wards, cardiac floors, and specialty units. I can recite health insurance policies (and call their bluff).
I know a lot of other things in life too, like Shakespeare, where to sit to see a great sunset over a lake, how to keep myself healthy, how to read a profit/loss statement and state statutes, when to use a comma, and that gratitude is one of the keys to success.
So I’m going to have this blog and write about home care from time to time. I’ll include topics like current legislation, professional boundaries in a tricky environment, and being a caregiver. I’ll also post some guest blogs from clients and nurses.
Join me in the conversation.
