The Services We Provide

A boutique approach where
every detail is important

Our Nursing model means that all of the care we provide is overseen by nurses 24 hours a day. They are directly involved in every step of service from initial screenings to daily management of client and caregiver needs. Our team creates a holistic care plan that addresses physical and emotional needs for our clients and those closest to them.

Custom Care

There is so much more that can be done with our Custom Care!
Whether we are providing care during a vacation in or out of state, short-term, postsurgical care or helping to plan a home for aging in place, No Worries can do it all.

It’s all about “Yes”

  • Yes, we can fly to Florida and pick up a lovely grandmother who wants to come to Portland for a special family gathering.”
  • Yes, we can evacuate you, your dog, and all of your equipment to a hotel when your well-pump freezes.”
  • Yes, we will provide complex care to your loved one with ALS.”
  • Yes, we can dismantle our skills lab hospital bed and bring it over and set it up so you don’t have to return to rehab tonight because your hospital bed didn’t get delivered.”
  • At No Worries we have the freedom to say “Yes” and that is what Custom Care is all about.

Quick Start Care

We can’t always plan ahead for our care needs. Early hospital discharges, sudden changes in needs and unexpected accidents or illness can all require help fast.

With our “Quick Start” program, we are able to start services with very short notice. Our team basically “drops everything” to make sure you have exactly the care you need when you need it.

Some Quick Start Stories

Two hours was the time it took after receiving a call to care for a hospice client, who needed help immediately, to get caregivers scheduled and Jason Sanders, RN on his way to get care started. Our caregivers are incredible and had compassion. One caregiver got the call from us while she was in Portland and went to her daughter’s home to get some sleep so she could work the night shift as she lived about an hour away and this allowed her time to get enough sleep. Caregivers changed their personal plans so they could help this family.

I received a call from a daughter who had been up 35 hours caring for her mother. The daughter was exhausted and needed help. Teresa and I were the only nurses in the office. It was 3:15 PM. I was leaving town and needed to be out the door at 4:45 PM. Teresa had an appointment after work, but we looked at each other and knew we had to try. Everyone in the office dropped everything, which is something we are used to doing for our Quick Start Care clients, but this was a bit of a stretch. However, because the client lived close, hospice got us the orders quickly and a caregiver dropped everything to go help, Teresa was at the client’s home before 5:00 PM and the client received the care she needed while her daughter was able to get some sleep.

Late Friday morning we received a call that a client in a rehab facility was going to be discharged and they wanted to be home in a few hours. The situation was very complex including tracheostomy care, tube feeding and more, but our nurses pulled it off and the client was in his home that afternoon. Nurse Jason was out Friday night until after 10:00 PM and Nurse Teresa went out on a Saturday evening to delegate to the night caregiver. This is the most complicated Quick Start Care client we have had and it was fun to work together to make it happen for this very nice client who really wanted to go home.
