PARISH NURSE

 

My ministry is Parish Nursing which I am passionate about. I am an RN whose PRIMARY focus is the Saint Rita Faith Community. I have served Saint Rita Parish family for over 10 years and I have loved every minute. I work evenings and weekends.

My goal is health promotion and disease prevention - providing holistic care, connecting the mind, body and spirit for each patient so they can strive for wellness!  The emphasis is to promote independence and prevent decline; support lifestyle changes as they relate to health and wellness; offer health education and health tips.

I support all patients and their families by making home visits, accompanying patients to their doctor's appointments, making Emergency Room, hospital, and nursing home visits, providing comfort at end-of-life journeys, and promoting a healthy lifestyle for all parishioners.
