Home Health Services

At Community Nurses, service excellence is our goal. Our Community Nurses highly skilled professional team treats patients of all ages, for all types of illnesses, injuries and conditions.

Patients are referred to home health care by a physician, usually after a doctor’s visit or a hospital stay. It is important that people get the skilled care they need to keep them from returning to the hospital or emergency room. Whether you are recovering from an illness or surgery, or living with a chronic disease, Community Nurses Home Health Care can make your hospital visits less frequent and improve your quality of life while managing your illness and recovery in the comfort of your home. Our professional staff works closely with your doctor to coordinate all aspects of your care and educates you and your family to serve as partners in managing your health care needs.  

If you have questions about home health services please feel free to call us at 1.800.841.9397.

Home Health Services Include:

Skilled Nursing

A registered nurse will visit you in your home to evaluate your condition and coordinate your plan of care. Your nurse will make regular visits to provide skilled nursing care, help arrange for additional home health services you may need, teach you and your caregiver how to manage your illness and prevent complications, and keep your physician informed of your health status.

Community Nurses has a well-educated staff dedicated to meeting the specialized needs of our patients. Patients with medical problems and conditions such as non-healing wounds, ostomies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, congestive heart failure, and more, will benefit from our Specialty Programs to help them control these chronic conditions.
