Is there anything more gratifying in this world than knowing you’ve made a difference in someone else’s life?
CNAs have an incredibly positive impact on older adults and in home care. This year we honor all the nursing assistants and home health aides during the week of June 16-22.
National Nursing Assistants week has been celebrated since 1977. We wish all of our CNAs and HHAs a very Happy National Nursing Assistant Week!
Technological advancements have made it viable to monitor patients remotely while at home or in skilled care. And this bodes well as we are seeing a massive shift in the caregiver community.
Physical activity is a must when it comes to aging and maintaining independence and health. Just as our population of older adults is increasing, so is the amount of research into the importance of the effects of regular exercise.
What we know: more and more older adults are looking to more active lifestyles versus a sedentary one AND wanting to age in place.

Nurses make a huge difference. They are trusted advocates who make sure patients and families receive quality care, communication and services.
From home health care for aging in place, remote monitoring and streamlining care provider scheduling, these are the growth areas that are showing to shape healthcare this year and beyond.
We can all agree caregiving is stressful. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we want to make sure you are not leaving your stress unchecked!
Stress is a very common occurrence for caregivers. No one is immune to it. Stress affects us all, yet it manifests itself in different ways for each of us and reminds every individual that stress management is vital to improving performance at home and work.
