Basima Hamati-Attieh

BSN, RN, PCH Administrator
Basima has over 20 years of nursing experience since she started her career in the 80’s at St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing. Her focus on providing high-quality and compassionate care led her (and her brother Nader) to enter the field of long term care in 2007, when Above and Beyond Personal Care Home began. Basima is certified as a Personal Care Home Administrator, and fulfills the roles of both Administrator and Director of Nursing.

Frequently, Basima can be caught with a stethoscope checking a resident who is short of breath while speaking directly to that resident’s doctor on the cell phone to coordinate the care needed to help the resident breath easier. With such rapid recognition of changes in health, and coordination with the health care team, Basima’s interventions can often prevent a hospitalization. Basima’s leadership creates an environment which goes “Above and Beyond” the typical personal care home.

Nader Hamati

BS-ME PCH administrator
Although Nader doesn’t have a health care background, his 18 years with DuPont (and their emphasis on safety) coupled with his skills in business and management complement Basima’s talents, and keep the business end of Above and Beyond running smoothly. Nader is the President and CEO of Above and Beyond, Incorporated, and is also a Personal Care Home Administrator.

Nader sees a need for Personal Care Homes that are not only affordable, but also comprehensive and flexible enough to meet the ever-changing needs of the seniors in the Lehigh Valley. This vision led to the purchase of the Mountain View community in 2009, and the subsequant 18 room expansion in 2012, which extended even more options to our customers.

Tony Attieh

ServSafe Certified

Tony is Basima’s husband, and provides the “behind the scenes” support for supplies, inventory, and facilities management at Above and Beyond.  Most of the residents, however, recognize Tony as the “King of the Grill” during summer barbecues!

Kelly Hamati

MSN, CRNP, PCH administrator
Nader’s wife, Kelly, was a classmate of Basima, and also has over 20 years of nursing experience. Also certified as a Personal Care Home Administrator, Kelly provides assistance to Nader and Basima in their roles at Above and Beyond. Kelly also coordinates education and training for Above and Beyond staff.
