Founding Board Chair, Chris Thomas’s son Eric had been receiving nursing care at home for more than 20 years. During that time they had worked with many different home-nursing agencies, some of which had closed. Frustrated, because she wanted her son cared for not only the right way, but for the right reasons, in 2005 Chris decided to support the formation of the only non-profit organization in Oregon providing in-home nursing care to medically fragile children.
Here’s a video about the program:
Our vision is to be the leader in providing expert home nursing care and comfort for the medically fragile and their families.
Nursingale, as a non-profit, embraces a set of core values:
• Integrity and respect guide all of our actions.
• Teamwork and a positive work experience support high-value client care and staff satisfaction.
• Partnerships within our community maximize our services.
• Commitment to keeping families together is a driving force in all that we do.
