Don’t let the name fool you: it may mean “heartbreak,” but Creve Coeur is comprised of beauty, history, and downright friendly neighborhoods. It’s where we at Compassionate Nursing Services call home, and where we help area seniors enjoy all that this lovely city has to offer with trusted, professional Creve Coeur in-home care.
When the weather is picture-perfect, there’s nothing better than gathering together a picnic lunch and a good book, and enjoying a leisurely afternoon at one of Creve Coeur’s seven parks. Or, for something more adventurous, many of our seniors look forward to taking in a show at the New Jewish Theatre. And to unlock our inner artist, a trip to That Painting Spot is always a welcome excursion. With our transportation and accompaniment services, seniors who are no longer able to drive, or who would enjoy a friendly companion to share in an outing, are able to explore all that our area has to offer.

Compassionate Nursing Services Caregivers: The Cream of the Crop
Bringing a caregiver into a senior’s home for the first time is something we at Compassionate Nursing Services never take lightly. We understand the need to be able to fully trust the person you allow into your personal space, which is why we take great pains to meticulously check the background of each person we consider bringing onto our care team, provide orientation and training, and seek out that special, innate sense of compassion and caring that is an absolute must. The bottom line: We only hire those we’d wish to care for our own loved ones. So families can rest assured that they’ve made the right decision in choosing the services of Compassionate Nursing.
Our Unique Approach to Alzheimer’s Care
There’s no cookie cutter approach to specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care with Compassionate Nursing Services. Our Creve Coeur in-home care for those with dementia is provided by fully trained and experienced caregivers who receive ongoing training to help manage even the most challenging behaviors that are inherent with Alzheimer’s. We create a customized plan of care, and then modify that plan as needs change throughout the progression of the disease – so the care received is always the exact level of care needed.
