Staff

With consultation from our Medical Director, a team of dedicated and experienced nurses are on duty 24 hours a day at Helen Porter. A Nurse Practitioner (NP), Registered Nurses (RN), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), and Licensed Nurse Assistants (LNA) take care of any health issues and daily living needs of residents, assuring their safety, personal hygiene, and comfort. Tailoring care to individual needs and goals is central to our philosophy. Recognizing that some residents may have special needs, our Social Service, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy, and Activities Departments are equipped to assess each person's situation. Programs are available for the physically challenged as well as those with memory impairment.

In conjunction with the nursing staff, Dietitians, Nutrition Services, Activities, Housekeeping/Laundry, Administration and Maintenance, subscribe to an interdisciplinary approach in which all areas of expertise are equally important. Within this context, considerate and respectful care is given to each resident. In the event of an emergency, the nursing home is adjacent to Porter Hospital (make a link) which is fully equipped and staffed to handle critical illnesses.
