Home and Community Care Nursing
If you are an elder
We support your dignity in the health care you receive.
We support you to be cared for, valued, relaxed, comfortable free from fear and anxiety.
We support family care and involvement to help maintain independence, good nutrition and strength.
We respectfully inquire about what is most important to you as you live your elder life and possibly experience pain, anxiety, discomfort and/or mobility issues.
