Alert Best Nursing was established in 2003 by Yvonne Griggs. Working as a charge nurse in a long term care facility, Yvonne was aware of the chronic staff shortages and the difficulty of providing proper care for 60 plus clients. She decided to start Alert Best Nursing to promote excellence in health care, with a focus on personalized and responsive patient care services.
Alert Best Nursing was initially a staffing agency providing registered staff to new and established health care facilities. As the company grew, clients began requesting personal support worker assistance for health care facilities and for private in-home care. Alert Best Nursing realized that there is a growing need for in-home care support services. To meet this need, Alert Best Nursing provides highly personalized senior support services that can be adapted to meet any client's needs. Alert Best Nursing is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist clients and their loved ones.
Prior to founding Alert Best Nursing, Yvonne was a Registered Practical Nurse in long-term care facilities for over 10 years. She has extensive experience in nursing, patient care and case management. She also has in-depth knowledge of the health care system in Ontario, including administration and strategic planning. Yvonne completed advanced training in brain injury rehabilitation, geriatrics, palliative care and dementia care.
Alert Best Nursing is proud to be an independently owned and operated Canadian company.
