Nurse-Directed Care

Nurse-Directed Care

With Nurse-Directed Care from Home Instead of Green Bay & Sturgeon Bay, families have access to a broader range of services through one trusted partner. A greater scope of care means we can support even more activities of daily living, including specific medical needs, so that aging adults can remain at home. It also means families can get much-needed respite to recharge and peace of mind knowing that everything is in good hands.

These highly specialized services are available in the comfort of your loved one's home so that your family can avoid transitioning him or her to a nursing home or another higher level of care. Our CAREGivers undergo extensive specialized training to ensure your loved one receives the highest, safest level of care. We also have registered nurses on staff to support these services and the CAREGivers who provide them.
