Charmaine is the Director of Nursing for NU-Era Home Health Agency, Inc. Many of our clients are seniors, and she makes sure our clients are comfortable, and safe.

What is this nominee’s involvement in senior care or senior issues
Charmaine will drop everything to make sure her clients are safe, and provided with the right level of care. She is compassionate and knows what to do in all situations of healthcare for the patient. Recently, she was on vacation in NY; a patient called the office in a panic, we called her. Charmaine, called the patient, calmed him down, and thoroughly explained to him what needed to be done. By the end of the conversation, both Charmaine and the patient were laughing and having a good time.
It is that demeanor that makes Charmaine special. I am honored and privileged to be a co-worker and associated with such a fine human being.
