When Ethel Picado was a little girl, she never thought she would be a nurse, she just knew she loved learning. That love was enhanced in 2012 when she joined EveryStep Home Care.
As an RN Case Manager for EveryStep, Picado helps people make the most of what they can do while they can live at home safely and independently.
Every case is different than the one before for Picado, who sees four to seven patients on any given day.
Picado provides patients with treatment and medication management, health assessments, patient education, counseling, or connects them to community resources such as a social workers or senior companions.
“It’s kind of my nature as a person, I like to take care of other people,” Picado said of her chosen career. “My goal is to get people somewhere and help them see more about how they can take care of themselves.”
