We are pleased to announce that Mandy Newell has been promoted to Assistant Director of Operations for Capital City Nurses, LLC.  Mandy is responsible for directing all coordinating and customer service functions.

Capital City Nurses is known for providing exceptional care. But we’re also known for the way we facilitate that care. Mandy has an integral role in these efforts.

Our experienced, knowledgeable care consultants & coordinators are more than just schedulers. They’re available 24 hours a day to answer your questions, help with placements and referrals, and make sure that their clients are well cared for and safe. These valuable professionals hold college & advanced degrees.

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of engaged care consultants & coordinators who understand the complexities of every case. Our care coordinators are familiar with the strengths and preferences of each caregiver and match clients and caregivers mindfully. If a match isn’t right for either the client or the caregiver, the care coordinator will be glad to place a different caregiver who is better suited to the assignment.

If you have any questions, please call us anytime 1-866-687-7307.

If you’ve been taking care of your own aging parent or family member, you understand how important the emotional care is to their overall health and happiness. We offer services designed to emotionally and mentally engage your loved one as well as provide practical daily living assistance in the home when needed.

Daughter Down the Street – Enjoy a visit from your surrogate daughter. You could make a trip to the store, go to lunch and a movie or even go to your doctor’s appointment with a companion that we like to say is “socially savvy.” This is our companion care service and requires a 2 hour minimum visit.

  • Friendly conversation
  • Incidental travel
  • Mental stimulation
  • Memory care and socialization

Short and Sweet – Many seniors do not require 4+ hours of care or don’t feel comfortable having someone in their home for that long. The Short and Sweet program is a 90 minute visit from a CNA to help get the day started. Our care giver will assist getting up and dressed, doing things around the house that could be helpful (like a load of laundry or organizing a closet), having breakfast or preparing a snack for later. This is a great way to introduce the idea of home care to clients that have never had it before. The visits are 90 minutes and there is a minimum of two visits per week.

  • Personal care assistance
  • Meal preparation and planning
  • Light housework
  • Medication reminders and safety

We recommend/require skilled nurses (LPN’s) for our post op clients. It may seem unnecessary, but our experience shows that it is better to have a skilled nurse with a post op patient, even if it a simple cosmetic or other procedure.

In the Hospital
Many people believe it is important to have a caregiver with the patient at all times. Whether your parent is uncomfortable and needs attention, or has a sudden turn for the worse, having a caregiver who will immediately get help could have a significant impact on your parent’s recovery.

We can help by providing 24 hour coverage or as few as 4 hours of coverage. Our paid caregivers are available to work within your family’s schedule, to ensure your loved one is never alone during their time of need.

In the Home
We can help ensure post-surgery and discharge instructions are being followed to help prevent readmission by reminding the individual to take medication, among other necessities. After an important surgery or hospitalization, many patients benefit from having someone at home for assistance and support after being discharged. During this initial recovery period, home care can also be an amazing comfort that can help the healing process be more successful.

We are so proud to share the news that Capital City Nurses’ Staff RN Dawn Warner and her family are on a Service trip to Nicaragua to help a children’s orphanage in Puerto Cabrezes. They delivered medical items as well as everyday living tools to help these children.

We cannot wait to see the pictures that Dawn and her family took during their special trip. We are so proud of the work she and her family are doing! And of course we will have to post on our CCN Facebook so everyone can see what great nurses do – on and off the clock!!

On behalf of all of us at CCN we donated toothbrushes and toothpaste for 100, as well as arts and crafts supplies. The name of Dawn’s church is Maryland Christian Fellowship Community Church and it is located in Greenbelt.

How quickly can I find a caregiver?
Caregivers are available to begin work within 24 hours. In many situations, we can place a nurse within a few hours.

Can you send someone to check up on my parent? I want to make sure she’s okay.
Yes, we can go to your relative’s home, meet with them, and provide you with a care assessment. Depending on what we find, we can provide information and referrals to trusted eldercare experts in other fields such as law and medicine.

What is the minimum number of hours for a shift?
We have a menu of options, from 90 minutes twice a week to a one time four hour shift.

Do the caregivers drive?
Most do. Our caregivers that drive have safe driving records and are insured. If your loved one needs someone to drive him or her to doctor’s or other personal appointments, let your care coordinator know so we can match the client to an appropriate caregiver.

Our Nurse Registry – A caregiver referral service that refers licensed, screened, background checked and insured independent contractors. This option could be a wonderful choice for clients that require longer shifts or have a strong support system helping them plan their care.

Medication Management – Maintain control over your medication regimen with the help of a Capital City Nurses RN or LPN that will reconcile all medications and pour them in a pill box weekly or bi weekly.

Daughter Down the Street – Enjoy a visit from your surrogate daughter. You could make a trip to the store, go to lunch and a movie or even go to your doctor’s appointment with a companion that we like to say is “socially savvy.” This is our companion care service and requires a 2 hour minimum visit.

Our caregivers are not only highly qualified; they are part of our family. When interviewing a prospective candidate, we ask ourselves, “Would I want this person caring for my mother?”  To become a Capital City Nurse, the answer must be a resounding “Yes.”
