Angelbee Nursing Service (ANS) was established in March of 2011 with a mission to supply high quality, at-your-convenience, in-home nursing care, which has not been readily available locally.
Our clients are of both genders and all ages; prefer the privacy and comfort of home and the familiarity of designated caregiver(s) to the sterile atmosphere of a care facility with shifting caregivers who rarely take the time to become familiar with his/her needs; may or may not have family members to provide direct care; have the option to chose where this care is accessed and prefer this to be home.
Our staff are prepared and reputed to provide the highest standard of care and are supported by an infrastructure to support this standard.
Our service can be accesed for either long or short durations as well as for single procedures and escort services.
To make a significant contribution to the health care landscape of Jamaica, as the preferred in-home care supplier with highly skilled, competent and compassionate staff whose primary focus is clients' wellbeing and where clients' satisfaction is our choice reward.
Starting in Kingston and St. Catherine, we will gradually expand our services across Jamaica with regional sub-divisions controlled by a primary nursing director and equipped with the infrastructure to ensure your best care.
Over time, our services will include caregivers with background security checks, who can be interviewed before engagement of service; and management staff who will be available for consultation, at your convenience.
Our standard is excellence, therefore staff are continuously trained, mentored, monitored and evaluated to ensure that this standard is maintained at all times.

To be signed to Angelbee Nursing Service you are required to undergo a review process, which includes completion, submission and evaluation of an assessment form; receipt of your supporting documents (proof of qualification, NIS, TRN and photo ID (National or Drivers Licence) and verified passport size photograph); taking of references and discussions held.
To initiate the process of signing up, copy your nursing certificate, your TRN, NIS, Food Handler's Permit and a photo ID (National ID, passport or Driver's Licence) and get a passport sized photograph and call (420-6363 OR 326-4784) for an appointment for assessment. Eventually, you will need a Police Record.
After you have completed the assessment process you will be enlisted as a Home Nurse / Caregiver. At this point, if a job becomes available for which your skills and experience make you suitable and you are deemed the best available nurse/caregiver for the job, one of two thing will happen. If the client does not require an interview prior to placement, you will be placed in the position. If the client requiires and interview prior to placement, you will be sent to meet with the client for an interview and if you are successful at this interview then you will be assigned in that position.
There is a charge of two hundred and eighty dollars ($280.00) for the assessment form and no additional charge to sign up, however; if and whenever you are placed in a job you are required to pay a percentage of your first week's pay.
Providing direct care to loved ones can be hugely stressfull. The family member who is a caregiver requires much support, which includes time away from the patient to rejuvinate and recoup the internal resources required to be patient, tolerant, empathetic and compassionate. Other family members should provide a safe environment for the caregiver to vent without feeling guilty about feelings that might not be expressed in polite or politically correct terms. Similarly, caregivers should seek outlets for pent up emotions to prevent burn out. Here are a few suggestions of stress busters that doesn't cost a penny and can fit right into a tight schedule.
Knowledge really is power... arm yourself with the knowledge neccessay to provide the kind of care that you can feel good about. Ask questions, read widely and don't be shy about using the internet. Not every bit of information you find online will be credible but check the source and use your instincts. Information proported to be published by a professional that contains poor grammar and bad spelling is probably not the information you are seeking.

Take a break from your duties.... fifteen minutes away from the patient can provide a needed breather when emotions are running high and threatening to become overwhelming. A break can make the difference between self control and saying or doing something that can never be taken back or be undone.
Look at something beautiful...the world is filled with beautiful and interesting scenery that can now be accessed with the click of a button. Pinterest, for example, provides a great vantage point from which you can tour the world. Take a peak at different cultures and far away places. The beautiful scenery to the right are a few such examples and the supply is endless.
Say something nice to someone who needs to hear it...Making someone else feels good often has a blow back effect - it makes you feel good too. Finding something nice to say to some folks can be challenging but not impossible, no matter how difficult the person might be. "You keep me on my toes!" This is a true but nice commentary on someone who frequently complains and criticizes, isn't it? Finding innovative ways to express negative thoughts in a positive way is actually good mental exercise and great for you. Of course it is so much easier to find something complementary to say about good people, indulge them and yourself. Remember, it makes you feel better too.
Forgive yourself for wanting to be someplace else...Taking care of yourself should be a natural inclination and that is rarely possible when taking care of someone who needs a lot of hands-on care. Wanting to be some place else is simply wanting to take care of you and why not? You deserve it! When the urge comes - take a break if at all possible!
Lauth often - laugh aloud...laugh at yourself, or at an old joke and if there is no joke, laugh anyway. Laughter relieves stress, reduces tension, stimulates organs, boosts your immunity, boosts your mood and actually relieves pain.
If laughing doesn't happen spontaneously, start with a chuckle or a smile. See if you can find a few smiles from the posters to the right...
