Nurse Oversight, Patient Advocacy and Care Management
Once we have the right home care team in place, it then comes down to proactive management. Nurse Supervisors oversee all client care, working closely with the care giving team to make sure we are following the Plan of Service and making any necessary adjustments. Nurse Supervisors also serve as a liaison between everyone involved, from the Client to their Family, to Physician and other healthcare specialists, and to any other professionals who may be involved in your overall support network. Communication is critical in navigating the complexities that often accompany the constantly changing environment of home care.
In effect, Broad Street's Nurse Supervisors can serve as your
Broad Street also understands that you may already have these resources in place, and not every home care service applies to everyone with some preferring a more private life with less active engagement. Because we are not a franchise home health care agency, Broad Street will always respect your individuality. Our Nurse Supervisors are there as a Care Management resources but only when needed and requested.
Advanced Need Home Care Specializations
Broad Street’s more comprehensive home service model with active Nurse Oversight and extensive training makes us particularly effective in working with complex underlying health conditions. This involves greater attention to detail, planning and ongoing training, and communication and collaboration. The result is very effective as we help support your specific symptoms in the context of your overall needs and preferences. Specific areas where we specialize include:

Additional Premium Home Care services include:
Geriatric Care Management, Elder Care Management, Patient Advocacy
Because we take a team approach to our home care service, we work extremely well with Care Managers and Patient Advocates.
The service to you is seamless, where we provide additional support. In addition, in cases where you need management of an overall solution, our Nurse Supervisors can also service as Care Manager and Patient Advocates. Essentially, we fill in the gaps.
With Nurses directly involved in your Home Care, we can also help you organize and manage your Medication.
This includes coordinating with multiple physicians and ensuring there are not conflicts and adverse reactions. It's also helpful as it guides what symptoms to look out for.
While Broad Street is not a Medicare Home Health provider, sometimes the Medicare solution is not enough to cover your needs.
Our nursing services, because they are not limited by Medicare or burdened by the administrative overhang, are focused purely on your direct health benefit. Examples include:
- Wound Care
- Home Infusion Therapy and IV management
- Tracheotomy Care
- Feeding Tubes
Broad Street Adventures - Travel Companion
It is one of the greatest ironies in life is that we work so hard in fulfilling our professional pursuits and raising a family.

Home Care Professional Selection Process
Broad Street’s mission is to create a great experience for you and your family. This requires a significant amount of diligence and planning, which includes selecting the right people and making sure they are prepared for the job. This is a thorough and collaborative process designed to start things off well, then proactively managed to provide the right solutions along the way.
Highly Trained Care Professionals
The most important decision Broad Street makes is identifying the right Personal Assistant. Based on your input, your Nurse Supervisor and our Human Resources team work to identify the individual(s) with the proper skills and necessary experience to establish a basis for your safety. From there we work on other characteristics that you have identified as important towards establishing a successful and enjoyable relationship.
Client-Specific Training and Proactive Management
Preparation is key to a successful start of any home care service. We review your Plan of Service with your Personal Assistant before they are introduced to you. We also conduct a hands-on demonstration of activities and safety precautions specific to your needs. We emphasize relevant aspects of professional conduct to make sure your Personal Assistants are considerate of any unique personal or household requirements. Once service begins, we proactively manage your care to ensure everyone is following the plan and you are receiving the service that meets your needs. Broad Street's success is based on this constant process of communication, adjustment and improvement.
