Your customized plan of care is created and overseen by a Nurse Case Manager, and implemented by Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s) or Certified Home Health Aides (CHHA’s) as the hands-on providers of care. Licensed nurses are also available as direct care providers as the complexity of the care warrants or if preferred by the client.
