The Qualicare story began when founders, Andrea and Wayne Nathanson, faced these challenges when Wayne’s father, Nardy, was fighting a lengthy battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Their eyes were opened to the overwhelming complexities involved in providing care to a chronically-ill family member.
By the end of his life, there were 40 people involved in Nardy’s care, adding to the complexity of the case. If it weren’t for Andrea’s training as a nurse and ability to manage and co-ordinate all these resources, it would have been much more difficult for Nardy and his family. Through this experience, Qualicare was inspired.
