Mary Jane WandsMary Jane Wands, RN joined our team in February of 2014. She came to us with many years of experience in Nursing. Her heart is in caring for clients who wish to stay in their homes to recover from an injury or have a chronic disabling condition that limits their ability to care for themselves. She has a vast knowledge of what is expected of a home care provider as she worked for the State regulatory entity for over 10 years licensing agencies to provide care and monitoring the delivery of client care.

Mary Jane has been the director of nurses for a home infusion therapy company and worked as a field RN in home health to keep her skills active throughout her career. Personally she has a wonderful gift –her aged Mom is living with her, and reminds her everyday how important it is to have love, compassion and caring knowledge of the needs of the frail and elderly.
