A Message from our President & CEO – Lisa Parent
2016 marks one hundred years for Community Nurse. Since it was founded in 1916, the Agency has grown and evolved to over 200 strong, two offices, a service area of over twenty towns, three services – visiting nurse, hospice care and private care – and to embrace a comprehensive approach to the community’s most urgent health needs.
Our philosophy is to treat employees as a unified family with respect and provide genuine support so they will be invested in doing the very best job possible. And as a result our long tradition of quality care continues to grow. We take a great deal of pride in what the agency has been able to accomplish and the quality of care that each and every staff member brings to the community. Because our staff is such an integral part of the community and we have kept in tune with the community’s needs, we have developed and adapted programs that reflect them including hospice, geriatric psychiatric nursing care, Alzheimer/dementia, chronic disease management – to name a few.
Health care does not end with a hospital stay. Once home, we help patients recover from surgery, we help you manage a chronic disease or we assist with the physical and emotional needs of a terminally ill loved one. We bring comprehensive, quality and compassionate care into the place people feel most comfortable – home.
Our agency continues to excel in the area of patient satisfaction with percentages well above national and state averages and our re-hospitalization rate remains dramatically lower than our peers and has placed us in the top 20% of home care agencies. In 2012, based on the results of unannounced surveys and reviews, our hospice program AND our home care program joined an elite group recognized as deficiency free by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health – their highest distinction. This recognition of excellence joins others from industry groups, like the Visiting Nurse Association of New England and the Home Health Care Alliance of Massachusetts, which have awarded our agency for having the most effective and innovative approaches within the evolving home care sector.
When you choose Community Nurse Home Care for your home health needs you can have the highest confidence in the care you will receive. Please do not hesitate to call us today with any questions or additional information. We’d love to bring caring home to you!
