Making Lives Better

We get it—choosing home care for a loved one raises lots of questions. That’s why at Nurse Next Door, we’re thrilled to offer a complimentary Caring Consult. This is your opportunity to dive deep into your loved one’s needs and preferences so you can make an informed decision about their care.

During this in-home meeting, you’ll sit down with one of our skilled Care Designers. Not only do they have a robust health care background, but they are also experts in matching seniors with the right caregivers. Together, you’ll explore your specific care needs, ask any questions you have, and develop a tailored care plan that aims to enrich the life of your Mom or Dad.

Here are 8 questions to ask during a Nurse Next Door Caring Consult:

1. Can We Call Anytime?

Absolutely! Our 24/7 Care Team stands ready to assist you whenever you need support. We’re here to offer peace of mind and allow you some well-deserved respite.

2. How Does Nurse Next Door Stand Out From Other Home Care Companies?

We’re not just about meeting your basic care needs; we’re committed to enriching the lives of your loved ones. Our unique Happier Aging™ approach focuses on reigniting past passions in Mom or Dad. Whether it’s painting, gardening, or any activity they used to love, we aim to bring that joy back into their lives—all while delivering top-notch care that enables them to stay in the comfort of home.

3. How Often Should We Schedule Care?

The frequency of care largely depends on your loved one’s specific needs. During your Caring Consult, our Care Designer will help you determine the most appropriate schedule—whether that’s support for daily tasks or more intensive, around-the-clock medical monitoring. Generally, we recommend a minimum of three visits a week.

4. What’s the Cost of Home Care Services, and Is It Covered by Insurance?

The cost of our services varies based on your location and your loved one’s level of care. During your Caring Consult, we’ll discuss pricing and whether your insurance can help cover the costs.

5. Is a Professional Nurse Always Assigned?

Nurse Next Door provides nurses the freedom to practice nursing as they’ve always envisioned. However, if your loved one doesn’t require specialized medical care, we can pair them with a skilled caregiver or companion for other support needs, such as companionship, cooking, errands, and transportation to appointments.

6. How Do You Select Your Caregivers?

Your peace of mind is our top priority. That’s why we meticulously vet each caregiver, conducting comprehensive background checks, credential verifications, and TB tests. But beyond credentials, we ensure that each caregiver aligns with our core values: they must be passionate about caregiving, excellent listeners, and dedicated to promoting Happier Aging™ for our clients.

7. Will the Same Caregiver or Nurse Always Assist Us?

We go to great lengths to match your loved one with a caregiver or nurse who complements their personality and needs. Should your regular caregiver be unavailable for any reason, rest assured we will find a high-quality replacement to step in.

8. Is a Contract Required?

No contracts here! We understand that life is unpredictable. If you need to cancel a service, simply give us at least 24 hours notice to avoid any cancellation fees.


Ready to take the next step in ensuring exceptional care for your loved one—or perhaps for yourself? With Nurse Next Door, it’s entirely possible to continue living in your OWN home, enjoying the comforts and memories that make it special, even when you need a little extra help. Let’s work together during a free Caring Consult to craft a tailored plan that addresses care needs while reigniting joy in everyday life.
