The support of a reputable company provides the convenience of getting the right caregiver without the hassle of the process. We process all human resource functions, payroll, and insurance obligations for the caregiver and provide continuous learning in their professional development.
Key Performance Indicators
We provide assurance of the quality of our service by monitoring for Key Performance and Satisfaction Indicators.
Founder of Nice Us Geriatric – Ms. Arlene Nysus, using her professional skills as an Occupational Health Nurse, designed special tools created to bring structure, accountability, and quality care to the home care setting.
Our care service is evidence-based and we are better positioned to give the assurance that quality care can be given every time.
Nice Us Geriatric was started to complete one mission. To stop Elder Abuse. This is why we exist.
We truly believe that one day, elder abuse will be a thing of the long-forgotten past and that ALL elderly persons will be cherished, respected, and valued.
As a social enterprise, we not only provide a solution to end elder abuse but also to provide sustainable employment in the Geriatric Caregiver Industry – an industry that currently has no authoritative body on a national level and may be subject to many issues because of this.
We strive to protect the elderly, protect the caregiver and as such, protect the legacy of a nation.
True Healthcare For Your Family!
