About CarePro Health Services, Inc.
While working as a visiting nurse in 1995, Noreen Flanagan was inspired to create a different kind of health care agency following a particularly poignant visit with a patient suffering from dementia. As Noreen talked with the patient’s husband, she observed how overwhelmed he was trying to meet the increasing needs of his wife. This gentleman himself was aging, yet he was his wife’s full-time caregiver. His grown children had families and jobs of their own and were not in a position to help. When Noreen suggested that he contact a home care agency, he stated he was overwhelmed with the thought and didn't’t know where to begin.
Following that visit, Noreen decided that she could offer a better choice to alleviate the concerns that he and so many other families shared. After researching all of the community and private support services available, she discovered many obstacles. Families were faced with continuously having to change organizations in order to meet the evolving needs of their loved one. Noreen wanted to offer patients and their families continuity in care as patient and family needs changed, along with options to mix services to accommodate their preferences and financial restraints. Noreen’s vision was to create an agency that offered a comprehensive range of services delivered by an elite team of caregivers. That vision today is Carepro Health Services.
