Expect Exceptional Care
We provide caregivers to help our clients age in place in the comfort of their own homes, wherever home may be. Our care is one of the cornerstones to helping elders maintain their dignity and independence while aging in place. We have provided and referred caregivers to thousands of families over the last four decades, each with their own set of circumstances and their own unique needs.

Tri-Cities Nurses Registry and Helpmates, Inc., which does business as Capital City Nurses Registry, helps clients locate a qualified, independent caregiver. The Registry consists of thoroughly-screened nurses and qualified nursing assistants, and we work with families to ensure that they feel they are well-matched with the caregiver.
The Registry is a good care option for families who have the resources to actively manage their loved one’s care. Registry caregivers are not employees of Capital City Nurses Registry and the Registry does not and cannot supervise their work or direct them as to what care to provide—the caregivers are independent contractors. The Registry charges your family a fee for referring a caregiver; the family compensates the caregiver directly and manages all scheduling and coverage issues (though the Registry can make additional referrals as needed for substitute caregivers to help address gaps in care).
Capital Health Care Associates, Inc, which does business as Capital City Nurses Healthcare Services, employs Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Certified Nursing Assistants to provide care in homes, hospitals and other medical facilities. Care providers are employees, and Healthcare Services takes care of all scheduling and payment matters; families receive one invoice for services.
Healthcare Services is the better choice for more complex medical situations where there are significant medical concerns or issues, where the family needs more support in coordinating care, or where active patient advocacy may be required. Healthcare Services works with the client’s medical team and family as needed to ensure a consistent quality of care. [Because the caregivers are Healthcare Services employees, Healthcare Services provides training and supervises their work.]
