Seniors have a variety of care needs that can be challenging to address with families spread apart geographically, children balancing dual careers and other responsibilities. Julie understands firsthand the stress involved with caring for someone with medical issues while managing one’s career, family and personal needs. Sometimes, all someone needs is a just little help. Because emergencies can happen at any hour, Nurse Next Door has a team in place to answer calls live, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and families are given peace of mind.
Julie and her team also know that being cared for in one’s own language, whether it is French, Spanish, Arabic or Italian, can make all the difference when someone isn’t feeling well. This is just one of the many details that Nurse Next Door pays close attention to when matching the each client to the best suited caregiver. Nurse Next Door not only provides medical and non-medical senior home health care services, they also provide staffing for long-term care establishments and they hope to one day have a therapy dog on the roster for CHEO and nursing homes!

Our Talent Is Caring
Nurse Next Door carefully hires naturally caring people who love delivering compassionate client focused care. Julie was at a social event when someone overheard her explaining to a friend how she was making a difference in people’s lives with Nurse Next Door. Piping up from across the room, the woman said “I want to work for you!” Walking up to Julie, she explained that she truly enjoys taking care of others, is a yoga instructor for seniors, is a great cook and she’s passionate about gardening. This person, now a wonderful member of the Ottawa East Nurse Next Door team, is exactly the type of person Nurse Next Door Ottawa East looks for in caregivers; people who are naturally caring and bring joy into the lives of those around them.
