Nurse Geriatric Care

Posted: 12/9/2018

Looking for a Nurse (RN) to join our home care family

Description:

At ComForCare Home Care we value our nurses like family and invite you to become a part of our team. We celebrate success and have fun! If you are an RN, with a current license in Virginia and have a background in geriatric care management, consider working with a team dedicated to helping seniors live comfortably in their own homes. Our mission is to help our clients live their best life possible despite age and physical limitations. We have an open PRN (part-time, flexible) position in our care practice.

Initial Client Home Evaluations

The RN will visit clients in their homes and provide initial evaluations of the physical, social, and environmental needs of the client. The nurse will help develop appropriate patient-centered care plans so that clients receive the best possible home care with respect to conditions or injuries. The nurse will counsel clients and their families regarding self-care, chronic condition management, and evaluate clients’ responses to care provided.

Hospital Relations

The nurse will act as the clinical care coordinator for assigned individuals and their families, collaborating with clients’ other healthcare professionals as needed. The RN may also initiate referrals as necessary. 

Working with Caregivers

After doing initial client home evaluations, the RN may help select an appropriate caregiver whose personality and skills are compatible with the needs and persona of the client. He/she will review care plans with caregivers to ensure understanding and help clients to receive the best care possible. The RN may also help to train and instruct caregivers on critical skills that may be necessary when assisting with condition management.

A Unique and Interesting Position

The RN that works with our office is ideally a person who loves working with people and enjoys a regular change of scenery as opposed to an institutional-style setting. The RN generally does not have to participate in many “front-line” nursing activities, acting mainly as a position of authority and performing administrative-style duties. The RN may; however, assist in business development efforts by attending an occasional meeting with one of the owners and a referral partner, e.g., a hospital.

The RN must be highly adaptable, able to work a flexible schedule and evaluate situations quickly and concisely to be a good fit with our office. He/she must also be highly competent and capable of providing accurate information regarding best practices for client health and condition management.

Join the Team

If you would like to play a key role in improving the lives of the elderly or disabled, we invite you to contact our office.  Our office is independently owned and operated.
