Owner of Nurse Next Door Gardner, Joseph Kiarie graduated with a degree in BSc Mechanical engineering, and after some years in sales, and marketing in the field, he fell in love with working with people. He wanted a complete change in his career, which is why he went back to school and received an associate degree in Nursing. He made connections through helping others and has been in the healthcare field for the past 16 years.
Joseph started out as a Certified Nurse Assistant and in the last 12 years, he worked as a Registered Nurse (RN). He has extensive experience caring for seniors in the nursing homes, acute rehabilitation facilities, and an acute care hospital. In the hospital, Joseph cared for patients with complex surgical procedures, and telemetry issues including various heart medication drips. He has also cared for those with chronic diseases, like diabetes, COPD, CHF, CKD among others. Joseph is certified in CPR, BLS, and ACLS.
Joseph recognizes the need for homecare is increasing in the Gardner community with the growing number of baby boomers retiring and requiring personal care. He chose to start a Nurse Next Door franchise after a brief experience co-starting a homecare company. He realized that a strong brand and well-proven system was the best way to stand out from the crowd while also providing premium home care services. How?
