Many of you have asked me how I came up with this idea of in-home service and the name “Annasus.” This is how:
I am a registered nurse, RN with a Bachelor of Science Nursing degree (BSN) and Master of Science Nursing degree (MSN) from Queens University of Charlotte, NC. I work at Atrium Health-Union in Monroe, Union County of North Carolina.
One day I was rounding with a doctor on a senior patient who was ready to be discharged back to her home. She was vibrant, independent, and able to care for herself at home except she needed a little help to maintain independence, especially after a short illness that caused her to be admitted into the hospital in the first place. Her family as all of us are, were busy people; had jobs, school-going children, needed to go on vacation, etc., etc., and most lived outside the state of North Carolina. They had their lives to attend to. Of course, they also maintained contacts with her and did the best they could, from far away, to maintain her social life while she lived independently in the comfort of her home. However, they were worried that she was home alone most of the time. They could not provide all the help needed to have her live independently and safely at home. So, they decided to have her discharged to an assisted living facility. When she heard the news, she cried out loud. Seeing her cry broke my heart and I could not help the tears flowing from my face as I silently cried along.
The above incident gave me some ideas, so I thought, “What if I come up with a service for seniors to help those still wanting and willing to live independently in the comfort of their homes, with a little help and are premature to be placed in assisted living facilities, taken to adult daycare facilities, or even nursing homes?” Annasus, which is Susanna the name my mother calls me, spelt backward, was born.
You see, I see the face of my mother in every senior’s face and this is my motivation and passion for Annasus Companion Care. I have an aging mother who prefers to stay in the comfort of her own home. We have tried, my brother, her grand-daughter, and I to bring her over here to the United States, to better take care of her, and she will not have it. She loves her home and maintains her independence and social life over there in Torit, South Sudan in Africa. Likewise, seniors over here, and we are all getting there slowly but surely, I assume, love to maintain independence in the comfort of their homes with just a little help and that is where Annasus comes in. I love to help seniors live again, in the comfort of their homes through in-home services from Annasus Companion Care.
