Our Story

Making Lives Better

Owned and operated by Parkdale locals Glenn Bartel and Vicki Caton, Nurse Next Door Home Care Services Melbourne South East proudly services the Cities of Kingston, Frankston, Greater Dandenong and Casey (incorporating Mentone, Chelsea, Seaford, Frankston, Somerville, Devon Meadows, Cranbourne, Dandenong and Keysborough), offering 24/7 home care that’s Making Lives Better.

Both Vicki and Glenn have been drawn to the in-home care health sector through their own shared personal experience taking on full time caring roles over many years for both elderly parents suffering from dementia as well as terminally ill family members. These experiences exposed them to the best in people through the compassion they witnessed from professional caregivers, and the fulfilment they took from helping clients and families dealing with the emotional rollercoaster that is so often felt.

Vicki and Glenn are excited to be a part of Nurse Next Door to experience the reward of Making Lives Better for families in their community.

Their promise is to do whatever it takes to bring you peace of mind that you, or your loved ones, are happy and safe at home.

Happier Ageing

Like everyone at Nurse Next Door, Glenn & Vicki believes that every age counts. They infuse our  Happier Ageing® philosophy of care into everyone they care for, no matter their age or ability, with one simple question:

“What did you use to love doing that you no longer do?”

From your Caring Consult through to the development of your Care Plan, Glenn & Vicki will help you reconnect with your interests, hobbies and passions that you may have lost along the way.

Our Talent is Caring

Glenn & Vicki’s team of qualified, trusted and extraordinary nurses and caregivers live and breathe Nurse Next Door’s core values, including admiring people and being passionate about making a difference and are all happy and naturally caring people who love making others smile. Glenn & Vicki carefully match caregivers based on your individual needs and are confident that you will receive the best care in the Melbourne South Eastern Suburbs.

Nurse Next Door Melbourne South East provides care services, including NDIS support, dementia and Alzheimer’s care, assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), nursing care or simply companionship, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, to suit your needs – all with no long-term contracts.
