Local Professional Turns to Nurse Next Door to Fulfill the Heart

Nurse Next Door, Walnut Creek, East Bay

Karen Wells Opens East Bay’s First Senior Care Franchise

Karen Wells values the quality of life for those in need over the almighty dollar. As a child, Wells was raised by her grandmother, instilling old-fashion values and ultimate respect for others. When she was in her 20’s, Wells was faced with a sudden role reversal having to care for her ailing grandmother. The experience allowed her to understand the difficulties involved with being a family caregiver while developing a career; it was also a driving force behind her desire to provide comfort to those in need.

image003-2That’s why Karen Wells, an accomplished commercial real estate broker and professional since 1988, decided to leave her lucrative position and open Nurse Next Door’s first location in Walnut Creek. “I saw the need for providing care in our community at a level that I would expect for my own family, says Wells. “This is what resonates with my heart. I want to make a difference.”

The need she refers to is this: by 2040, the number of people over the age of 65 in the East Bay will more than double from 900,000 today to nearly 2.1 million. The increasing senior population is fueling the demand for home health care, and Wells is optimistic her new Nurse Next Door location will provide East Bay seniors with the proper support they need to stay happy and healthy in the comfort of their home.

“Often times, the need for home care is urgent and unexpected,” Wells suggests. “I know first-hand how difficult it is to face that transition from daughter to caregiver. It’s not easy and I’m very dedicated to providing an unmatched customer experience. My goal is to make this change as easy, painless and invigorating for all involved. Why not allow the family to celebrate the time with their loved ones rather than worry how to provide care?”

By offering a full spectrum of home care services ranging from three hours-per-week of companionship and light housekeeping to around-the-clock care, Nurse Next Door’s new Walnut Creek operation gives families an affordable and caring solution to keep loved ones happy and healthy at home.
