Janet Walker, owner of Nightingale’s Home Care, explained to us that they specialize in focusing on the partnership with the patient and their family. They aim to be to be involved in the full process of keeping patients comfortable in their own home through end of life and to be the one long term care agency with that family. Through their partnerships with the hospital, rehab agency and other care providers, they are involved in the entire process. Janet started this company 13 years ago after her past experience of being in home care and her Mother in Law expressing to her how she never wanted to leave home. Nightingale’s is locally owned in Grand Junction and serves patients all over the Grand Valley.
One of the most rewarding parts of being a home care provider in their business has been taking care of patients for a long period of time and building life long relationships. They have patients who have been with them for 8+ years and also have patients that reoccur in families, which is extremely humbling. One of the greatest challenges in this line of work is maintaining stable staff. They strive to find caregivers who are caring, confident and reliable individuals. Anyone who is looking to get involved in the non-medical home care business is encouraged to look into Nightingale’s for immediate openings.
Janet also shared the Life Story Program with us. This is a free program offered to clients where they document the individual’s life story as a keepsake for themselves as well as to pass on to their family for generations. It is a program that is close to their heart because it allows their patients the opportunity to document everything they have accomplished in their life where this opportunity may not have been provided otherwise. It is important for clients to document everything they have achieved on their bucket list, goals they have met and overall life accomplishments.
