First Presbyterian Church and the Waveny Lifecare Network are partnering together to place a Parish Nurse with our congregation for a few hours each month. We welcome Katarina Tchakorov as our Parish Nurse. Katarina will be with us on the first Sunday of each month to do a blood pressure clinic following worship. We invite you to step into the Parlor following worship to have your blood pressure taken and to introduce yourself to Katarina. Katarina will encourage, guide, and support individuals and families within the congregation to become active partners in their personal and spiritual health, and serve as a liaison between the faith and medical communities.
Registered Nurse, Katarina Tchakarov, has served Waveny LifeCare Network since 2013, most recently as a case manager and visiting nurse with Waveny Home Healthcare, and as the organization’s Clinical Recruiter – a unique role in which she is responsible for interviewing and hiring nursing personnel across the non-profit healthcare network. Katarina brings a diverse nursing background and social work focus to her new role as Parish Nurse, including extensive service in geriatrics, cardiology and reconstructive surgery
