Nurse Next Door proudly serves the areas in and around West Orlando, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Windermere, Dr. Phillips, Horizon West and Oakland, offering compassionate 24 hour senior home care for your loved ones.
Owner of Nurse Next Door Orlando West, Teri Collard has been a Registered Nurse for 27 years specializing in caring for patients undergoing surgery. It doesn’t stop there, she also has 15 years of experience being a Nurse Manager and has recently obtained a Master’s in Nursing Leadership and Management. Throughout her career, she had worked in various settings, such as: physician offices, Level One trauma centers, community hospitals and out-patient settings.
As a nurse leader, it has given Teri the opportunity to lead teams and to improve processes to improve the care and experience of her team members, physician partners and most importantly, their patients/clients.
Teri says, “I went into nursing because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of people. I wanted to be able to step into a time in a person’s life that could be very scary, and cause a great deal of anxiety and help them feel safe and cared for. That is why I go to work everyday and truly love my profession.”
Being in the healthcare industry over the last 27 years, Teri has seen great advancement and innovation that has improved care and outcomes in many ways, while also seemingly causing more challenges to patients once they leave the hospital. For example, hospital stays for illness are much shorter which causes more responsibility for recovery and continued wellness on the patient, families and friends.
Her goal as a home care services company to be able to help bridge this gap between hospital and home and provide the extra help, education and care the client needs to feel safe, to have full and complete recovery without recurrence and to improve health and happy living. This combined with the growing aging population seems like a great time to Make Lives Better to those in her community.
West Orlando is one of the fastest growing areas of Central Florida adding many homes and families each day. Also, due to year-round warm temperatures, it attracts a great deal of retirees to the area, increasing the numbers of aging population. Nurse Next Door’s goal is to allow these seniors who have chosen Central Florida as their home the choice to enjoy living out their retirement years in their homes doing whatever it is they love to do!
The team understands the pressures of trying to take care of the people you love most which is why clients can expect Nurse Next Door to take a whole new approach to elder care services. By carefully matching caregivers with clients based on individual needs and wants, families can rest assured that their loved one is being cared for like family. It is truly about taking care of the details and meeting clients’ unexpected needs. With Nurse Next Door’s 24/7 staffed care services support center, Teri is confident that her clients will be the best cared for.
