Giving with Gratitude
Healthcare as it should be
Thanks to our generous donors, we are are able to put the patients first at Community Nurse Home Care. A team of professionals collaborates to ensure each patient gets optimal care whether they are in home care, receiving physical or occupational therapy or in hospice care. We work closely with doctors and hospitals to individualize the services to each patient’s specific needs.
While much of our essential services are covered by insurance, what makes us stand out is often unfunded. We have identified many unmet needs of our patients and added to our core services to serve those needs even though they are not reimbursed. These are important tools to help our patients have better outcomes and satisfaction with their care.
Donations allow some patients to acquire pieces of equipment that can make such a difference in their healing and independence.
Your gift helps support the following services:
Education for patients and families about nutrition and specialized diets to help with comfort and healing.
CONSULTATIONS & ADVICE
Help to patients and their families navigating the complex health care system.
Supporting our hospice families and a community in grief, through one-on-one support and grief support groups.
ITEMS FOR HEALTH & SAFETY IN DAILY LIVING
Making sure patients have what they need to return to independence, or to just stay safe and comfortable in their home.
Consultation to improve the quality of life when suffering with chronic disease or life limiting illness.
MEMORY LOSS & DEMENTIA SUPPORT
Support and advice for caregivers and people with memory loss and dementia through family meetings and referrals to support groups.
CARE TRANSITIONS PROGRAM
Assuring successful transition between healthcare settings, keeping patients safe and supported.
REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING
Monitoring our most fragile patients’ vital signs and symptoms remotely.

Your support is critical to providing innovative, lifesaving services to our community.
