Edina Plan of Care

Our RN is an active manager of our in home Alzheimer caregivers and oversees the quality of care they deliver to our clients with a solid plan of care. From the initial full medical assessment to medication management to regular quality assurance visits, our RN knows everything about our clients and their care needs in Edina, Minneapolis, and West Metro. She personally trains and directs the CNA’s in all levels of care and develops a close relationship with each family. Most of them have her on speed dial and she’s available 24/7 by phone to handle emergencies, answer questions or to consult with caregivers if they have client concerns. More than one of our clients have told me they don’t make a move without consulting with our RN!
