Tendercare was started by a nurse looking to transform her own life by taking control of her schedule and connecting more deeply with home healthcare patients. Today we’re an IndyStar Top Workplace six years running, and are recruiting registered nurses right now to join our team of almost 300 healthcare professionals.

From Our Nurses

From Our Patients

“I was looking to use the skills I gained in the intensive care unit, but I wanted an environment that gave me the time I wanted to spend really connecting with patients. I found that in Tendercare. It’s been such a great experience getting to do this close to home and on my own schedule.”

“I’ve been a nurse with Tendercare now for 15 years. I remember how hard working the floor was, how tired I was at the end of my shift. I made the switch to Tendercare and I’ve never looked back. I get to spend so much more time with my patients AND with my family. It’s been the best decision of my life.”


A stronger bond with patients.

Becky Paetz, RN & Case Manager

“I started working as a nurse in 19XX, and like a lot of nurses, I started right at the hospital. I can’t count the number of patients I’ve seen. I can’t tell you how many hands I’ve held. It’s been a rewarding calling. But after a while, I really wanted to focus on making a bigger difference in the lives of a few patients that just need more. Now, I get to make a difference in the lives of two families—baby Theo’s, and mine.”




High-tech care with a deep connection.

Overview of an interview with a patient who’s been with Tendercare for a while and loves their RN or care provider. (Preferred focus on a patient that’s built a long bond with the nurses, hopefully growing up with the care from pediatric to adult, requiring high-tech skills, showcasing the loyalty and opportunity.)

Join our team, transform lives.

Tendercare is a local, family owned and operated home health nursing agency placing nurses with adult and pediatric patients for one-on-one care. Many of our nurses made the change to Tendercare because they were looking to connect more deeply with patients and their families. If that sounds familiar, we might be a great fit for you.

After joining Tendercare, we will place you with patients that fit your skill set and are close to where you live, so you can see them on your schedule. We can also place you in a full or part-time position. And we offer paid time off and continuing education opportunities throughout the year.

It’s all about practicing your nursing skills on your time—but more than that, it’s about making a positive difference in the lives of the patients you serve. Are you ready to join our team?
