ABOUT ME

As a Registered Nurse working in multiple healthcare settings,  there was little time to devote full and complete attention to one patient.  As an employee –  of the  hospital, nursing home, home care agency, etc. – I was under the constraint of doing as much as possible in as little time as possible.  I sometimes wondered, “If only I had a little more, would it have made a difference in that person’s life”?

In 2010,  I founded and became sole owner of Deserving Care, LLC.  Over time I have learned that quality far outweighs quantity each and every time. I now have the opportunity to spend as much time as necessary to see that person as a wonderful and unique individual; and focus on their specific concerns and needs.

Subsequently, if the need is to accompany a family member for 4 hours to help them make an informed decision about the appropriateness of a living environment, I am now able to do so.

This is how Deserving Care has established itself in its  position of uniqueness.
