Nizhoni Health Provides Emergency Plan for National Preparedness Month
In the past few weeks, Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma reminded us just how important it is to have a plan in place before an emergency strikes. While much of the damage can’t be prevented, a strong emergency plan can help people and their communities recover faster from a traumatic event.
Emergencies can come in the form of natural disasters, disease epidemics, terrorist attacks or many other kinds of occurrences. Luckily, there is a vast library of resources available to help you prepare for an emergency.

A Look at Nizhoni Health’s Community Service in 2017
At Nizhoni Health, we strive to provide value for our clients and their communities whenever possible. This year, we are continuing two annual Nizhoni Health traditions to give back: our shelter drive and our participation in NAMIWalk Massachusetts 2017.
Throughout our company's history, Nizhoni Health has made efforts to hire the most thorough clinicians with a knack for seeing emerging trends in health care. We choose those that are dedicated not only to treating our clients effectively, but also finding ways to ensure our services become better each and every day. Our clinicians are truly dedicated to the communities in which they live and work.
On occasion, one of our clinicians will earn an award or demonstrate expertise through a quote in the media. We’re happy to say that one of our longest-tenured clinicians is featured in a recent post for Wicked Local Watertown.
At Nizhoni Health, we are proud of the work our clinicians do every day to help our clients achieve quality health outcomes. While they are an important part of providing ethical care for everyone, there are some other hardworking people that should also be recognized for their effort. November is National Family Caregivers Month, and we cannot thank family caregivers enough for their cooperation. When they work together with us, our clients can truly thrive.
