As Community Nursing Care is generally government funded, Registered Nurses are not routinely retained on staff. Occasionally, certain individuals may not qualify for assistance or they may wish to supplement their entitlement. In such situations, we will arrange for Private Duty Nurses to provide in-home treatment, care, support and/or education.
In both situations, assessors may review subsidization possibilities, develop Care Plans, make referrals, and arrange for Service Delivery Schedules according to the clients’ wishes.
If you have any questions regarding our services don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to help.
