Overflowing with enthusiasm, Dr. Tongie Scott has a strong passion to serve others and has succeeded in making her passion her life's work. She attended Jackson State University and graduated from Grace University Medical School. Dr. Scott also serves on several advisory boards, including Open Campus for at-risk youths, and is the CEO & Founder of Me and My Nanna, LLC.
Dr. Tongie Scott's company, Me and My Nanna, LLC, was first established in Columbus, Mississippi, in 1995 and continues to be deeply committed to quality in-home skilled nursing and the supreme well-being of your loved ones.
During its infancy, her company was borne out of a need to desperately find a qualified caregiver for her own children. At that time, acquiring a sitter was difficult and because there were no other agencies located in Columbus or the surrounding towns or cities, the task was seemingly next to impossible. In addition, after a bout with malignant papillary carcinoma, which at the time was most frightening for Dr. Scott, she realized that there had to be something established in her area. A dream was thus envisioned, and within a few months, the dream became a reality.
Over the years, Me and My Nanna, LLC, quickly became quite popular in the area. Services were rendered from Mississippi to Delaware to Minnesota and as far as Hawaii. Since her agency is governed and guided by the simple principles of H.O.S. (Honesty, Openness and Sincerity) at its very core, they have had many repeat clients over the years.
Me and My Nanna, LLC continues to strive for excellence when providing a family with what the company likes to term as "an extension of the family." They believe that if an atmosphere is created which is most conducive for the loved one being cared for (the family and the nanny), then all of the parameters for what could easily be a "perfect" match will evolve.
In 2005, Me and My Nanna, LLC, was licensed through the Department of Human Resources - Office of Regulatory Services. With this particular kind of licensure, they are allowed to provide Skilled Nursing, Certified Nursing Assistants and Companion Sitters in the homes of individuals who may find themselves needing assistance and who desire to remain in their homes for as long as they possibly can.
Although Tongie Scott is a medical doctor, she firmly believes that her sole purpose is to provide a warm and caring atmosphere in the homes of those individuals who find themselves needing premiere skilled and/or non-skilled services.
