NurseStaffing @Home Offers Comfort, Help to Seniors Valley Wide
Nora Platt, Branch Leader

Nora Platt and her staff take calls around the clock from seniors and families needing assistance. 

"We are definitely busy," she says with a smile.  Platt's company, NurseStaffing@Home is one of the few organizations in the Valley that offers assistance with IV's, wound care and medication management in addition to their home care services.

She says, "We pretty much can do it all which is why I think we are so popular.

We have Team Members who can help with meals, showers, or accompany you to a doctor's appointment.  We also have Nurses that can help with medications, wounds, IV therapy and injections."

According to Platt, this flexibility is especially important to seniors being discharged from hospitals and rehabs who need additional care when returning home or for seniors dealing with a chronic illness.

Adds Platt, "Our clients know we truly care. We are committed to helping them remain safely at home in comfort - and with dignity."
