As families become geographically diverse, the
challenges for seniors maintaining independence in their
own home can be numerous. Susan Rodgers anticipated
many of those needs when she started Capital City
Nurses (CCN) over 40 years ago. Today the company
continues to meet those needs by providing unsurpassed
care, on-going staff education and all kinds of support
designed to keep families close, whether they’re down the
street or across the country.
Rodgers, a Registered Nurse, realized early on that
great care goes far beyond medication management.
She identified how important it is to make personal
connections with the clients and families, to match
caregivers to their charges, and to make sure that those in
Capital City Nurses’ care are enjoying life.
Today, Susan’s son, Brian Rodgers, continues
Capital City Nurses’ vision, seeking out the best
caregivers. “We hire people who we’d want caring for
our own moms and dads,” says Brian. He developed
CCN’s Caregiver Academy, an innovative program that
emphasizes the engagement between nurses and clients
by finding unique ways to create stronger interactions
and relationships. Meanwhile, Susan has taken the
lead in CCN’s Cottage concept, which provides upscale
supported living for seniors seeking a traditional homelike environment.
The Capital Cities Nurses push to grow stronger and
more connected is also demonstrated behind the scenes
via their dedicated support team, which is always available
to help families arrange and manage the very best care.
Homecare is a personal enterprise. It’s fitting that Capital
City Nurses continues to excel and expand under the
leadership of a family that truly knows the industry and
has always prioritized families’ peace of mind by providing
independence and safety for their loved ones.
