Health Care Professionals
We’ll help you bring JOY™ to your patients
The Nursing Team is a trusted home care referral for health care professionals including geriatricians, family physicians, assisted living directors, rehabilitation coordinators, hospitalists and obstetricians for patients that live in our service area. In order to better serve patients and their families, we encourage healthcare professionals to advise when home care may be beneficial.
Let’s Care — Together.
Caring for Aging Parents
The Nursing Team recognizes this can be a difficult conversation to have with patients. However, when a physician supports the idea of home care to the parent-patient during an office visit, it may help the patient be more accepting. The Nursing Team is here to help in any way we can to support facilitating those discussions. Having materials to provide a family caregiver will point them in the right direction and help alleviate the immediate feeling of overwhelm they may be facing.
Postoperative Recovery Support
Many types of surgery or medical procedures can inhibit a patient’s daily activity and/or ability to accomplish necessary tasks. This is another common situation in which home care can provide meaningful assistance. The Nursing Team™ can be the support they need for a day, a month or longer — with no long-term contracts. Physicians that may be aware of a patient’s household limitations upon return home can suggest the idea of temporary home care assistance through their recovery.
Obstetricians get to know their patients well. While most of the time the pregnancy and birthing journey is nothing short of miraculous, there are patients that may have a challenge ahead of them. This could be anticipating special medical needs of the baby or mom, limited help at home, multiple births and more. Providing home care resources that can help your patient after arriving home will prove to be an invaluable gesture.
Anticipating a hospital or rehabilitation stay can be an overwhelming idea for many people. This comprehensive service assists clients in navigating hospital and/or rehabilitation center logistics and care from initial appointment through at-home recovery. It provides the client with a consistent caregiver and assures they bounce back to the fullest potential after arriving home.
Why refer The Nursing Team?
The Nursing Team’s philosophy of care is built on the caregiving journey the owners experienced firsthand with their own mothers. Kathleen and Tom Chastain use that experience as inspiration to bring a light to what may be a very challenging home or family situation.
From their experience, they also came to realize how powerful it is to work in tandem with client and family physicians in a collaboration of care — all working together to alleviate the stress and burden from patients and their caregiving loved ones. This is why they strive to be the trusted home care referral for health care professionals.
