Who we are
Vibrant Health Homecare is a nurse-owned, nurse operated local home care agency serving the Pacific Northwest and Tacoma areas. The founder, Annet Pasquali, RN, is a baccalaureate trained registered nurse (RN) who practiced bedside nursing at Tacoma General Hospital for five years. Before that, she worked as a nursing assistant for seven years. In the 12 years of working in the healthcare industry, Annet noted that there were over 100elderly patients that cameto the hospital due to falls, dehydration and failure to thrive because they forgot to eat. Most of these patients ended up leaving their homes and going into nursing homes.
With these observations in mind, Annet decided to form Vibrant Health, a home care agency that helps seniors to stay vibrant and live longer in the comfort of their homes.
Together with Annet’s experience, the staff and caregivers at Vibrant Health Homecare have a combined total of 56 years of experience in elderly care.
Philosophy of care
We believe that wellness means to live vibrantly. We believe that elderly persons, with homecare assistance, can thrive with grace while continuing to participate in activities they have always found enjoyable. We believe in caring for the WHOLE individual – physical, social, and emotional support, so that that fatherly or motherly smile can last into the future. Vibrancy is an elemental force, and for the elderly who prize their independence, it can easily be maintained.
To become the preferred choice for senior in-home assistance services in our area while continuing to add as needed knowledge and skills to our company platform to make this a reality for our clients and their loved ones. To make this goal happen, we have scheduled periodic courses for our staff to make sure we stay knowledgeable about industry standards and are constantly updating our practices to match evidence-based practices.
We are on mission to help the elderly stay vibrant and age well in the comfort of their homes. Our first step on this mission is to visit the client in their present home setting and discuss the functional limitations they see in their lives and ask about other details which they may not be aware of. This is called an RN in-home assessment. After that is accomplished, we offer scenarios that can be incorporated into a care plan, which includes services that meet present needs and may help prepare for future needs of the client as well. We then match and assign the client with one of our caregivers. The RN care manager then introduces the client to our caregiver, and after that, make frequent wellness checks on the client and evaluate how our service is going.
