Nurse Navigators Launched

Nurse Navigators Launched

September 23, 2019

With great pride in the professional quality of the two Registered Nurses selected as Nurse Navigators, please meet Jacob Fuller and Lottie Bloxham. Both Registered Nurses are experienced in applying nursing practice to life situations. Jacob has started the new role, and Lottie is graciously helping to train her replacement, then will join Jacob September 22nd.

Closely working with Dr Carr, the Nurse Navigator will do some case management with residents who manage chronic long term disease processes. This will involve monthly contacts with residents assessing the status of health and possible teaching tips. Another challenge many experience is transitions from hospital to skilled nursing facility and/or to home. Having a resources person accompany a resident through the transition can relieve stress and anxiety for the resident and family and friends. Just to have a simple visit after moving into Mary’s Woods can offer support for life planning conversation.

The Nurse Navigator role expands Health Services at Mary’s Woods to give opportunity for every resident for participation in health support. The Nurse Navigator can be accessed by phone: 503-534-3941.
