Nurses on Demand was founded by Christina Dutkowski in order to address the shortcomings of the current care-system she noticed during her 5 years as an ER nurse in Edmonton’s hospitals.
Using her personal experience in healthcare, she set out to create a more efficient and personalized alternative to the traditional way care was administered, and thus, Nurses on Demand was born. Our services are designed to achieve four core objectives:
Reduce Time Spent in Hospital Waiting Rooms
Have you ever been told to go to the emergency room for injury re-assessment, dressing changes, stitch removal, cast checks, or any other minor injury or ailment?
If so, you’ll know that you can often spend hours waiting to receive this simple care. Many people will skip out on the treatment they need entirely just to avoid these long wait times.
But what if there was a way to receive this simple care without waiting hours in a stuffy emergency room? In fact, what if you could get a health professional to come directly to your home at a time that’s convenient for you?
At Nurses on Demand, that’s exactly what we do. We provide a range of in-home care solutions to help patients avoid this frustration and receive the care they need, when they need it.
Provide Inclusive Home-care Solutions for All Ages
At Nurses on Demand, we understand that seniors over the age of 65 require more in-home care compared to any other demographic. However, that’s not to say this is the ONLY demographic that requires quality care.
Our management also has a background in child/adolescent mental health. This experience has lead to an understanding of how to treat patients of ALL ages, and our inclusive list of services reflects this value.
Provide Flexible and Contract-Free Payment Options for Patients
Many home care providers rely on a contract-based payment schedule as their sole method of compensation. At Nurses on Demand, we understand that this might not be a realistic option for everyone who requires care.
We take pride in providing our patients with flexible payment options based on their needs, NOT our bottom line.
For example, with us you have the option to choose between three different pricing models, depending on your unique needs:
Pay-by-visit – This is a fantastic option for those who require care on an inconsistent basis. This option allows you to pay only for the care you need.
Pay-by-hour – This option is often used by clients who take advantage of our relief/respite care service. For example, if you’re a single parent with a special needs child, it can feel like a second full-time job. We’ll provide some much-needed relief for a few hours so you can go on a date or just take some time to relax and recharge.
Monthly Payment Plan – If you know you require care on a consistent basis, a monthly payment plan might be a good fit for you. We’ll set up a care-schedule with a monthly rate and assign one of our trusted nurses to provide regular care you can count on.
Modernize Edmonton’s Health-Care System
We live in the age of convenience. You can have meals delivered directly to your door and your online purchases arrive at your home within 24 hours.
If these things are possible, shouldn’t there be a more convenient approach to health care too?
The team at Nurses on Demand thinks so. That’s why we are constantly trying to incorporate new and improved methods that provide our patients with a more efficient and personalized home-care service, including:
- Free in-home consultations
- Phone consultations
- Online booking
- Customized payment options
- Medication reminders
