Tell us about your company.

We help our clients live a better life at home with quality in home care. Founded in 2010 by former 10News Anchor-Reporter Lauren Reynolds, At Home Nursing Care was inspired by Lauren's own experience needing in home care for her own mother, who died at 58 from breast cancer. Clients feel they can trust the care we provide because we only work with people that we'd be willing to assign to care for someone we love.

 

What products or services does your business provide?

In Home Care giving, Nursing and Care Management - hourly, daily or around the clock care. We help with bathing, dressing, ambulation, incidental transportation, meal preparation, laundry, exercises, stimulating activities, companionship and more. On the nursing side, we are licensed and accredited to provide skilled nursing care at home, including medication management, G-tubes, wound care and care management.

 

What was the most memorable or successful moment in your business' history?

We had a very long term client who had substantial needs, including 24/7 nursing care. Working with her family, we turned her living room into a private hospital suite - enabling to live our her life in the comfort of the home she loved. When she passed, her personal physician said that we were the best home care agency he'd ever seen. He even offered to say it on camera, and we have his testimonial on our website. This client taught us so much about how to provide great care, and we will always be grateful to her and her family.

 

Tell us an interesting fact about your business.

We are fitness enthusiasts, so we help each other eat healthy daily - but we also like to cheat together, especially at birthdays when the whole office is decorated and we buy Nothing Bunt Cakes to celebrate!

 

What tips/advice can you offer that is related to your business' industry?

Caregivers are never, ever independent contractors. Families must make sure caregivers are paid as W-2 employees including all payroll taxes, wage and hour rules followed, paid sick time, worker's compensation, etc. Only use a full service agency like ours, or make sure you hire a payroll company and get your accountant and attorney involved if you decide to hire privately.

 

Do you have any upcoming events or information you want your fellow Chamber Members and the community to know about?

We are moving into our new offices in October! We'll be sure to celebrate with a grand opening party!
