As a Registered Nurse working in multiple healthcare settings, there was little time to devote full and complete attention to one individual patient/client. As an employee of ahospital, nursing homes, home care agency, etc., I was under the constraint of doing as much as possible in as little time as possible.
As a result, I wanted to start a business where I was not required to make the maximum amount of home care visits – or care for the maximum number of patients within an 8 hour shift. I often wondered “If only I had a little more time, I could have done a better job…I could have really made a difference…”
Subsequently, in 2010, I founded and became sole owner of Deserving Care, LLC. Over time I have learned that quality overrides quantity each and every time. I now have the opportunity to spend as much time as necessary to focus on one client/family member’s individual concerns and needs.
If the need is to accompany a family member for 4 hours on a Saturday morning to help them make an informed decision about the appropriate living environment for their loved, I am now able to do so.
If there is a need to spend a few hours doing caretaker/caregiver research for a family member, I am now free to do so.
This is where Deserving Care has positioned itself as unique.
