Do We Need A Nurse Or Not? 

Here are three questions to help your family figure out the right qualifications for your situation:

1. Does a loved one need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) like toileting, dressing, eating, etc? A CNA or HHA is probably most appropriate.

2. Does a loved one require more specialized care, like catheterization or wound dressing? Some special needs cases require an LPN in addition to CNAs or HHAs.

3. Is a loved one transitioning between different types of care? Our Geriatric Care Managers are best suited for this type of work.
