About CompassionCare

Jackie Van Langen, a Registered Nurse for over 20 years, founded CompassionCare and has been growing the business since 2014.  While nursing in community care settings, Jackie realized the need for extra services to supplement what the government was offering to home care clients.  Since 2014, CompassionCare has provided countless clients of all ages and conditions in Red Deer and Central Alberta with high quality, compassionate, nurse managed care.

Jackie is committed to providing care that is always unique and custom tailored to each individual client.  Her nursing career has taught her that no two people are the same.  Because of this, she and her team works with clients and families to create completely customized care plans that allow clients to remain at home as long as possible.


Jackie is currently living in Red Deer with her husband and co-owner, John, also a Registered Nurse.  The are raising two children and are actively engaged in the community.  They love to travel, camp, and spend time with family.  They are compassionate, conscientious nurses with a desire to help those around them.  During their years working with clients in home care, community agencies, and hospital settings, John and Jackie have learned that there is truly no place like home.  People thrive mentally, physically, and spiritually in their own environments, with their own belongings.  The entire CompassionCare team looks forward to hearing from you with regards to how they can help you or your loved one stay at home, or in the place that you love.
