In the healthcare world, women provide the majority of care to a loved one while continuing to work each day. Many women in this situation find juggling the fulltime demands of caregiver and career a challenge: there’s simply not enough time in the day to do both. In the end, many leave their jobs to provide care to an aging parent.
CareNexus, or other private pay services, provides a way to support professional women who want to maintain their career and are also very sensitive to being able to provide the appropriate level of care to a loved one. CareNexus is a care coordination service that manages the care of a loved one.
Our services are overseen by a registered nurse and include case management and care coordination. We make phone calls to healthcare providers, identify appropriate resources, and assess needs telephonically or in the home. When you think “where do I go from here,” after your loved one has had doctor’s visit or was just released from the hospital, CareNexus us a great solution to coordinate care for the long term.
These are just a few of services offered through CareNexus:
- Personalized Plan of Recommendation;
