Dr. Leegard's home care franchise services Wheaton, Naperville, Schaumburg, Bloomingdale and the surrounding areas. Home Helpers Home Care offers the industry's leading model for comprehensive care with its unique care program, Cared-4SM, which provides the four necessary components to living independently. This includes Personal Care and Companionship, Nutrition and Meal Planning, 24/7 Emergency Response, and Wellness Calls to help ensure medications and hydration are maintained.
Dr. Leegard has a background in nursing as an RN with a Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP). She has worked with patients from newborns to centenarians with special emphasis on senior care, community health, and mental health. Her recent work has been focused on management, training and education. In addition, she is a Clinical Professor teaching mental health and community health nursing as her way to remain involved in the education of future nurses and to be current in her specialty fields.
"I enjoyed working in nursing, but when I saw the toll the pandemic took on our seniors and their families, I realized I had an opportunity to help by focusing on in-home care. Home Helpers Home Care enables me to combine my passion for care with the need for a service that can provide high-quality care to the older adults in our community," Dr. Leegard said.
In addition to allowing her to continue her passion for providing quality care, Home Helpers also helps Dr. Leegard fulfill her own American Dream. When she immigrated to the United States from the Philippines 30 years ago, she didn't know the path life would take, but she knew she was ready to accomplish something rewarding.
"I came to the United States with a big dream. After all of my hard work, I am an experienced nurse with a doctorate degree and my own business. As an immigrant and a woman, I couldn't be more proud of what I have accomplished and I'm looking forward to helping others fulfill their own dreams, from being able to age in place to building their own careers," Dr. Leegard said.
