Below are a few home care questions which we are asked on a regular basis. If you do not see the answer to your question below, please contact us here »
Q: How do I know if my loved one needs your services?
A: Often caring for a loved one reaches a point where standard care by a friend or family member just doesn’t measure up. It becomes too intricate or time consuming or even just too much for one person to handle. Nightingale’s Nursing is here to provide the professionally trained staff your loved one needs and deserves. They begin to lose interest in their appearance and/or personal hygiene. They may lose weight or become withdrawn. If they turn down an offer to go get their favorite ice cream and you notice they have dirty hair and yesterdays clothes on, pay attention! These are classic signs of a potential need for a caregiver, at least for a few hours a day. If you can get a caregiver introduced early on, it makes it easier for your loved one to have someone around later when they can’t get around on their own.
Q: What type of conditions does Nightingale’s Nursing have expertise in?
