Delivering Team-Based Healthcare at Home

Patient-centered care is a trending term in healthcare, but as a home healthcare nurse, I’ve been delivering patient-centered care my whole career.”

Years ago, Cynthia Wesloske envisioned her ideal career: to be a nurse practitioner who makes house calls. Now, at Vanguard, she’s doing exactly that, delivering care to homebound patients who otherwise may not receive the medical attention and other services they need.

“I’m part of a multidisciplinary team,” says Cynthia. “Together, we guide our patients toward staying well. That could mean encouraging good nutrition, helping with getting medication, and navigating other challenges that come with aging. A lot of patients want to stay in their homes, and we help them find the resources to do so safely. We also guide them toward a safer environment if needed. It’s a team-based approach to patient care.”

Inspired initially to go into nursing by her aunt, a community health nurse, Cynthia has now been working in home healthcare for more than 25 years. “I enjoy being able to work with patients to help make effective changes,” she says. “I take the time to help them understand their treatments and medications. With homecare, it’s not only about educating the patient but the whole family.”

She is told that she is a good listener, which she feels comes with the job. “My patients usually have a lot going on, and it’s important to understand their perspective,” she says. “We can develop a care plan that works for them and that they will follow.”

Cynthia primarily works with patients in the Verona area. When she’s not busy working, Cynthia enjoys spending time with family, paddle boarding, and practicing Reiki.
