5 Reasons You Want to Work at Nurse Next Door
” Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody.” – Kid President
I keep this framed title and quote on my desk. It’s the first thing I see when I start to work (besides my Anne of Green Gables mouse pad). It’s integral to my personal values, and it’s integral to Nurse Next Door. When you care about people, you care about all people. At Nurse Next Door, the care we deliver to our clients begins and ends every day with how we care for our own. Internally, we make it a priority to create and maintain a supportive culture in which our Caregivers can thrive. When they’re at their best, our service to our clients is at its best.
You have a lot of options. Why work at Nurse Next Door Delaware? I’ll give you 5 reasons.
Little Things Make a Big Difference
You CAN do the little things that make a big difference because we give you the resources to make it happen. Sometimes we team up with the seniors’ Dream On Foundation to grant dreams for our senior clients. It could a grand gesture(see video below), but usually it’s the little things that matter on a day to day basis. For example, we give stipends so you can pick up a cupcake for your favorite client (who is not diabetic, of course). We exist to make lives better. This is what our Happier Aging philosophy is all about.
Take a look at what our clients and team members have got to say about Nurse Next Door Home Care Services in Delaware!
1 on 1 Care
It’s 1 on 1 care. Not 10 on 1. Not 5 on 1. 1 on 1. A couple might make it 2 to 1. Our Caregivers can focus on their clients and provide highly customized care for them to meet their personal preferences.
When we pair our Caregivers with clients, we strive for a Perfect Match. We try to match both parties’ needs, interests and personality. Having compatibility as a foundation allows our clients and Caregivers to build rapport and form stronger bonds!
Caregiver consistency is also a top priority for us so that our senior clients always have a friendly and familiar face every single visit.
It’s not for everyone. In fact, if you require complete structure, this may not be the best environment for you. If you always find ways to improve your work environment, enjoy the ability to affect change, and are proactive, this is a place where you will thrive. Take a look at the 10 Things that require zero talent (a list we talk about and hold our team accountable to). We set our people up for success and also encourage a culture of self-leadership. We believe in Caregiving as a Career and so there are opportunities for growth with the company too!
In order to renew a CNA license, your ‘worked’ hours must be supervised by an RN. As a skilled home health agency, we have the certification to supervise, so the hours you work support your license renewal. This isn’t the case if you work at a Program Approved Service Agency (PASA), because you are not overseen by an RN. With a career at Nurse Next Door Delaware, you only need one job to support your professional CNA license.
We focus on ways you can make a career with us, so we offer a benefits package to help you create one.
