When her mother and mother-in-law both experienced serious health problems, Vikki Dargenio looked for a medical professional who could help them through the complex and often confusing maze of specialists, doctor appointments and treatment options.
When she couldnâ€™t find anyone locally who provided the service outside of a healthcare setting, Dargenio ended up giving up her full-time nursing career to use her medical experience and expertise to care for her family members.
In the process, the Lower Makefield woman says she found a largely untapped niche in health care services.
Enter her new business, A Nurse in the Family, which provides patient transportation, advocacy and medical guidance services to older adults and their families.
