Overall, what she gets is care, honest-to-goodness care. I get the peace of mind of knowing that my mother is with a company that sincerely cares about her. They give you basic respect, dignity and the tender loving care that all of our parents want and that we want for our parents.”

Client’s Daughter

Their care allows me to run the rest of my life, you know, because I have a full-time job and two 16-year-olds who need to go places. Nurse Next Door has taken the burden off of me. There’s really no other way we could have managed it.

Five Pillars of Happier Ageing®


Doing what you want to do when you want to do it.

The freedom to choose allows you to shape your life. You are empowered when you have choice.


Having meaning in your life.

Purpose comes when we have the opportunity to contribute meaningfully. It’s what motivates us to show up for ourselves and others.


Your right to make decisions for yourself free of outside influences.

You may not control life’s circumstances but being the author of your life means deciding what you do with them.


Accepting ourselves and others for who we are.

When we belong, we have a greater sense of fulfillment and well-being. Belonging connects us to something bigger than ourselves.


Showing care, concern and consideration for others, even when they are different from you.

Respect allows us to feel comfortable being who we are. Its how we admire people, including ourselves.

Happier Ageing® in action

Happier Ageing® has given older people a chance to rekindle passions and interests.

Bronwen’s Dream

Bronwen had always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon, but did not have anyone to go with.

Nurse Next Door registered nurse, Sacha, spent a very special morning with Bronwen, living out her dream

Ms. Daisy’s Bucket List

Care Designer Stephanie shares what our client, Ms. Daisy in her mid-80’s who needs around-the-clock care, put on her bucket list… and you’ll never guess what it is!


Mick’s Dream

At Nurse Next Door we focus on what you can do rather than what you can’t.

Prior to his stroke, Mick used to love riding motor bikes, so our care team decided to surprise him with a ride on a Harley Davidson. “Best thing I’ve done this year” said Mick afterwards. Next goal: “to get up and walk”

Robert’s Dream

The last time Robert was in a Harvard Aircraft was 63 years ago when he was a pilot in World War II.

When his caregiver, Janet, found out about his passion for airplanes, she made this happen.
