Beverly R. James RN,BSN
President/Director of Clinical Services
Long Island Care at Home, Ltd.
"I have long been a believer of patients fully participating in their care. That is why I chose to become a visiting nurse and ultimately open my own home care agency. Patients are the hub of the health care wheel and a wheel cannot turn without that hub/axle. We all are patients at one time or another and we usually have voice why not as a patient? I took the PULSE Advocacy training so I could help a person articulate their concerns/desires."
Coverage Areas: Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties
Service Offerings: Home visits, Hospital visit advocacy, Clinicians office advocacy, Telephone support, Care coordination (for the patient's family and friends)
"I am a certified senior adviser who can consult with a family upon a patient's discharge from a hospital or rehab and coordinate aging in place resources and services."
Coverage Areas: Nassau and Suffolk Counties

"I am firmly committed to making sure that patients are heard--even when they can't speak--and understood, even if they aren't clear. I am focused on helping meet the needs of families whose loved ones need help getting the care they need at every point along their medical continuum."

"I am at New York State registered nurse with an emergency room background and I also have hospice experience. I chose nursing as a second career in order to care and advocate for patients based on my personal experiences. I am very passionate about my work and feel that my medical knowledge can be very helpful and useful to advocate for others."
