Nurse Caregiver Options continues in-home care, plans include assisted living
Cheryl Petruce-Garcia of Nurse Caregiver Options is pleased with the degree her in-home care business is growing, since she appreciates being able to help those in the community stay in their homes, especially those who are elderly with health issues. “I’m doing a lot more wellness checks,” she said.
Her clients may be those living alone or with a spouse, and family members living out-of-state feel more comfortable having a qualified nursing professional making sure all is well with mom and/or dad. And Petruce-Garcia typically finds the concern is justified. With Arizona’s heat and dryness, inactive folks may not even realize they are dehydrated. She has often prevented problems before they start with her health checks and has advised adult children that they may want to consider talking to aging parents about retirement or assisted living.
You need not be a senior citizen to use the expertise of Nurse Caregiver Options. If you’ve had surgery, been in an accident or birthed a baby, give Petruce-Garcia a call and she’s more than willing to have a complimentary consultation with you to show you how she can help. It’s not worth setting your blood pressure soaring if you don’t know where to turn for assistance.
(Cheryl does BP checks, so you’ll know if you need to calm down on her initial visit!)
Later this year, Petruce-Garcia will be part of a team that will allow her to transition those in need into assisted living. “Dream Street Manor,” located in Carefree, will be a cozy (8 bed) venue where those who need full-time care can go. Slated to open late summer, those interested in securing a room (2 master suites are available) should phone to be placed on the waiting list.
Whether you’re a new patient, a former one, or one who never expected to need help, or you’d like more information on “Dream Street,” phone Cheryl Petruce-Garcia of Nurse Caregiver Options at 602-300-2904 to discuss YOUR options.
