Founder and Managing Director Arlene Nysus worked as a Registered Nurse at a public hospital where she noticed many elderly persons being admitted with usually preventable conditions; conditions that may have been caused by poor home care. She saw a need for raising the bar in the Home Care Industry…… for the sake of the elderly. And so Nice Us Geriatric was born on 3rd March 2016.
Our Core Values – N.I.C.E. is an acronym for Nice Integrity Competent Excellent and is embodied by everyone in the Nice Us team.
We exist to end elder abuse. We believe the elderly should be cherished, valued, and respected, because some day you may be blessed with long life and would want that too.
No. We are a Care Agency. This means we provide professional elder care in the comfort of the elderly's own home with a team comprising of a Certified Caregiver who renders the home care service and a Registered Nurse who monitors for Key Performance Wellness Indicators.
The service starts with a Registered Nurse conducting a Free Consultation, either online or in person. She does a needs assessment to determine your loved one's unique needs, then designs a plan of care.
Then the Certified Caregiver meets with your loved one and once we have a "comfort match" the service begins and the certified caregiver renders the service guided by the plan of care
The Registered Nurse monitors for wellness intermittently, because the elderly can be fragile in their golden years.
