Wellness Checks at Home
Get personalized care for Mom or Dad with a private nurse.
Medication Management and Check-Ins
We all lead busy lives. Whether you live far away or simply lack the time, it may not always be possible to physically check in on a loved one. Individuals with aging family members, who live both near and far, look for the peace of mind that comes with having a licensed nurse provide wellness checks for a loved one on a regular basis.
At NurseRegistry, we provide wellness visits and medication management services to ensure the health and wellbeing of your loved one. Visits are tailored to the client’s unique needs and can be scheduled on an ongoing or as-needed basis.
It’s not only our aging population—anyone who has health concerns that leave them unable to manage their medication regimen could benefit from a private nurse. Caregivers may be able to provide some in-home assistance, but are unable to manage medication and handle other medical tasks that are best suited to a nurse.
A private nurse is able to help with the following:
- Vital signs monitoring
- Medication management
- Wound assessment and care
- Education to client, family, and caregiver
- Frequent communication with care managers or family about patient status
- Other services as requested
Medication management services include:
- Organize medications and assess ongoing medical needs
- Develop medication regimen and checklist
- Dispense correct dosage of each medication at the right time
- Fill pill boxes or medication dispensers; update with new medication orders
- Reconcile medications and notify client when refills are needed
- Reorder medications as needed and procure refills
- Check labels, expiration dates, and warn patient or caregiver about potential interactions
Hundreds of families count on us to find dependable, reliable nurses.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I get a wellness check?
For individuals who are feeling unwell or are having difficulty managing their medications, a wellness check is a great way to assess and coordinate their care. Wellness checks are also useful for family members who want to keep an eye on their senior loved ones. It can be reassuring to know that a licensed nurse is checking in on them.
What are the benefits of getting an in-home wellness check?
An in-home wellness check can be a safe and convenient way to examine and maintain your health in the comfort of your own home, or to check in on an older relative. Our nurses can come to your home, assess your health, and then relay medical information to your doctor and existing health care team.
Who would benefit from an in-home wellness check?
Wellness visits at home are most beneficial to elderly and chronically ill patients. In-home wellness checks allow patients to receive care from the comfort of their own home and avoid visiting a doctor’s office.
How much will a wellness check cost?
The cost of hiring a private nurse for a wellness check will vary depending on the total hours of care and the nurse’s licensure, experience, and training.
Do I need a doctor’s authorization?
Yes, a doctor’s order is required for any nursing intervention that the nurse will perform. Nurse assessments do not require a doctor’s authorization; however, any form of treatment will require a doctor’s order.
