We recognize that there is no place like home, and often it is advantageous to age in one’s home rather than a nursing home. We work to craft solutions to make this possible, whether 4 or 24 hour care is needed, we can help. We are available 24/7 and provide many educational resources on our website for those considering learning more about homecare. At www.dialanurse.com, we offer complimentary educational videos explaining what homelier is, and how to select an agency. Our white paper, 5 Things to Consider when choosing Elder Care Solutions, is available as a download and provides information on local hospital patient to staff ratios, nursing home information, and homecare. We can also support those in nursing homes that may require additional help in excess of what the nursing home staff provides.
Our services are coordinated by a Registered Nurse who oversees and monitors the staff, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at no additional cost. Our staff all receive nationwide fingerprint background screening, drug-testing, skills assessment, and ongoing training in areas such as Alzheimer’s disease, Patients’ rights, CPR, Understanding and dealing with strokes, heart disease, and end-of-life. In addition, we have a library of over 110 educational and accredited health programs that are available to our staff. These programs provide additional training in all kinds of different areas that may arise, which allow our staff to not only understand a particular condition, but enable the caregiver to give the best care and education to the client and family, and advocate for the patient when needed. We want to help you.
Dial-a-nurse is still family owned and operated for over 35 years and is a drug-free workplace. Dial-a-nurse is the only home health agency that gives written tests to all applicants, and strenuously checks background references.
