Hearts of Ireland  - A Nurse Referral Service Agency
  
Welcome!                                                                                                                                        
At Hearts of Ireland our goal is to help our Clients' find and select the most qualified care providers, including Social Workers (LCSW), Registered Nurses (RN), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), Certified and Geriatric Nurse Assistants (C/GNA), who have a deep understanding of their needs, and can offer the helping hands needed, which can be highly beneficial to those Clients' facing recovery, chronic or advancing illness, and mental health needs. To help facilitate these increasingly complex levels of care, we can offer Care Coordination services to help maximize outcomes. 
 
How does Care Coordination work? 
Upon starting services with our agency, we can arrange for an Registered Nurse (RN) to visit with you, and your family/POA/Advocate, to complete a Skilled Nursing Assessment. This information will be assessed by a RN and Social Worker (LCSW) affiliated with our agency. Upon completion, a LCSW will arrange a 2nd visit to your home, and go over the assessment with you and your family, including exploring all options as you navigate the process, and plan for in home care or alternative living arrangements specific to your needs/wishes. Understandably, our Clients' prefer the familiarity, and comforts of living at home, so we strive each and everyday to make this possible, but we understand sometimes living at home may no longer be realistic or a safe option for some. When this happens, it can be a very stressful time for our Clients' and their families. By offering the support families need as they approach some of these tough decisions, it can be comforting to know our entire team/contractors will be here every step of the way- ensuring peace of mind, improved outcomes, and a smoother transition for all involved.
