The Nurse on the Go Team understands that every individual has unique care needs and we endeavor to deliver the best care, in partnership with other service providers including physicians, therapists, social workers and families. We realize and respect that having someone come into your home to assist with these private and personal tasks can be very difficult. Therefore, our caregivers are dedicated to providing this type of care discreetly and respectfully.
People who live alone can often feel lonely and isolated, which can negatively impact their quality of life. Our caregivers can help by providing companionship when their family can’t be there. For our clients who like being on the move such as walking, or going to the movies, we have companions to accompany them on their outings. For those who prefer to stay closer to home, our companions can talk over coffee, play games or just be a friend.
