Background and Experience

Justice and Doreen bring a rich educational background in nursing and engineering to their roles. Doreen has applied her nursing expertise across various healthcare settings, including nursing homes, hospitals, and detention centers. Meanwhile, Justice has utilized his engineering skills in manufacturing and service sectors, supporting essential operations. 

As owners who have personally experienced caring for a parent with a terminal illness, their mission is deeply personal. They are committed to providing the same level of compassionate care to others in similar situations, treating each client with the care they would offer their own parents. Their primary goal is to deliver care with a deep sense of empathy and understanding.

What Motivated The Move to Home Care?

Justice and Doreen were drawn to the home care industry by a combination of professional expertise and personal experiences. Their backgrounds in nursing and engineering equipped them with a diverse skill set, essential for understanding complex healthcare needs and managing service delivery effectively. Professionally, Doreen gained valuable insight into patient care through her work in various healthcare settings, while Justice developed strong organizational and problem-solving skills in the manufacturing and service sectors. 

On a personal level, caring for a terminally ill parent deeply influenced them, providing firsthand insight into the emotional and practical challenges of caregiving. This experience fostered a profound empathy and a commitment to offer compassionate care to others facing similar challenges. 

Together, these experiences have not only prepared them for a venture into home care but also fueled their dedication to positively impact their clients’ lives through empathy and skilled care.

What is the Need for Home Care in Thornton, CO?

In Thornton, CO, and its nearby communities, the number of older adults is rapidly increasing. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2030, the population of people aged 65 and older in the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood area will increase by 50%. This growth means more people will need help with daily activities like bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and getting around for errands. It’s also important for them to have social interactions that enrich their lives. 

Additionally, some will need specialized care for more complex health issues, such as help with medications, wound care, and therapies that improve strength and help maintain independence. These services are essential for helping the elderly live safely and comfortably at home.

Why Nurse Next Door?

Our decision to start a Nurse Next Door franchise was driven by a desire to help older adults live happier, healthier, and more independent lives. We chose Nurse Next Door because it’s a leader in providing compassionate and respectful care. 

Our goals are simple: provide the best care possible, build a dedicated team of caregivers, and extend our services to positively impact our community. We’re excited about the opportunity to make a real difference, improving the lives of older adults and their families. Nurse Next Door’s commitment to Happier Aging™ means celebrating and enhancing the lives of older adults. 

We do this by working closely with skilled caregivers who genuinely care about their clients. We tailor each care plan to meet individual needs, ensuring everyone receives the highest quality of care. Our commitment to excellence pushes us to continuously improve our services.
