"Carepartner" - A better name for Caregivers

Lynn Chartrand

The role of  a caregiver is complicated because you are in charge of so many details but have no control out of the outcome most of the time. You need to remain a spouse, mother, father, daughter, son or trusted friend while also becoming a nurse, aide and medical expert. You feel the need to give care but still need to partner with your loved one to make sure their needs are met with dignity. All of this is why I think it is time to give you a better name. The spouses and loved ones from our Parkinson Support Group feel they are best defined as "Carepartners" and I agree! So hats off to the strong men and women who care for their loved ones each and everyday as "CAREPARTNERS".

I have seen this so many times in my career as a nurse and in my own life as well. Nurturers give their all for their loved ones each and every day in hopes of making their lives better. When it comes to a health care crisis unfortunately better is not always an options and many "Carepartners" can feel as if they are failing. This is so far from the truth. By stepping up, being there, being present in the life of you loved one during their crisis you are making the greatest difference.

So as you care for your loved one be present in the moment. The tasks you may do for them no matter how small are monumental because of the love and caring you are providing. But, also know that you do not have to do everything yourself. If there is a task that seems beyond you ask for help, you have "Carepartners" in your life that are waiting in the wings to help you too.

Our staff at Nurses & Company are overwhelmed each day by the love and caring of those that stand by their loved ones and provide care for them day and night through a health care crisis. You are the super hero's of health care that work tirelessly in the background. Thank you for all you do for your loved ones. 

If you need support Nurses & Company wants to be there for you as well. To learn more about how we can help check out other pages of our website or call our office  636-926-3722.

How can we help you?

Lynn Chartrand

Over the past 30 years I have watched the world change through health care. Our needs today are far more reaching than they seemed to be when I began as a Home Care nurse. Back then we were a band aid to keep you comfortable as you aged. Today we provide so much more, helping ensure quality of life over simply quantity.

Since opening our doors 22 years ago Nurses & Company has evolved to provide a greater reach of services aimed at helping our patients at each stage of their health care journey. 

Our home care provides services during a health care crisis, after a hospitalization or a surgery. Skilled nursing, occupational therapy and physical therapy play a role in ensuring that our patients are safe and comfortable in their home setting.

Private Services offers assistance with everyday needs from housework to personal care. I like to think of our aides as preventative medicine. As we age there are tasks that take additional effort. Scheduling an aide to assist with these tasks can keep you home longer and keep you safe from injury in the home. Private Services can also be helpful in conjunction with our other services providing additional assistance during a long term illness or after surgery.

Hospice provides comfort in many forms from pain management to end of life preparation. Our compassionate staff is there to care for the entire family providing support in the form of medical care for the patient as well as emotional care for caregivers and loved ones.

What ever the service our Nurses & Company family is dedicated to caring for you and your family no matter your health care journey while keeping you comfortable in your home setting.

I am so honored that so many of our neighbors have entrusted their care to Nurses & Company. We, at Nurses & Company, know there are many choices when it comes to health care. Thank you for considering Nurses & Company.

 If you have questions about our services please call us we can offer services personalized to your needs.
