Tell us a little bit about your role and a day in the life.
I am a Chronic Care Management Nurse at Signallamp Health. I spend my days caring for patients with chronic medical conditions. I communicate with my patients via telephone monthly and as needed. I work closely with the patient’s primary care provider and the office staff to ensure that they are able to successfully follow their treatment plan.
Why did you decide to do the work you are doing now?
I decided to work for Signallamp Health because this is the perfect job for a nurse who is struggling with work-life balance. I am able to work full time and care for my family the way that I need to. I have found working for Signallamp Health extremely rewarding professionally as well as personally.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Signallamp Health?
My favorite thing about working at Signallamp Health is that my patients are genuinely pleased to hear from me. When they need something, they trust me to be their advocate – their voice.
What’s the most poignant lesson you’ve learned about seniors from working in senior care?
Working with seniors has taught me two invaluable lessons about perspective and gratitude. Listening to stories from my patients about their lives, their relationships, their struggles and their joys, has helped me to learn about these lessons. When you realize that things are never truly as bad as they seem and can always be worse, you will be able to deeply appreciate what you do have.
How would you describe the company culture?
I would describe the company culture as “refreshing.” The administration prioritizes patient care without sacrificing staff satisfaction. They are open to suggestions for improvement and extremely responsive to all questions and concerns.
What makes a good life?
A strong and unwavering faith in God makes a good life. Your Faith can help you to see clearly what is important and meaningful to have a wonderful life!
