Celebrate National Nurses Week

21 Great Gift Ideas & Discounts For National Nurses Week!

Friday, May 6th through Thursday, May 12, 2016

At SelectCare Home Care Services of NY, none of the incredible work our agency performs would be possible without our dedicated nursing staff of RN and LPN caregivers or our team of RN Field Nurse Supervisors.

Our nurses play one of the most important roles in ensuring our services fulfill the needs of our clients and their families.  SelectCare’s nurse supervisors are responsible for all clinical care provided by our field staff, coordinating with each client’s physicians to develop personalized plans to provide consistent, comprehensive care.

On top of all that, our nurses visit every SelectCare client once a month to provide a free in-home health and safety check in, which time and again has proven instrumental in preserving the wellbeing of those we serve.

Being a nurse at SelectCare is an undeniably demanding job, with frequent travel for home visits, on-call hours on nights and weekends and nearly constant communication with our caregivers and clients.

With all that in mind, we wanted to celebrate 2016’s National Nurses Week (Friday, May 6 to Thursday, May 12) with a hearty “THANK YOU!” to every member of our nursing team.

It should be noted that SelectCare is not alone in its appreciation of nurses – tons of businesses are doing their part to say thank you for another year of compassionate care from hard working nurses across the country.
