For many, receiving nursing care at home is a preferred option. Our professional nurses and nursing staff offer a wide range of in-home nursing care.
Our visiting nurses offer physical assessments, help with symptom control, and provide medical or nursing treatments, rehabilitation therapy, education and counselling to individuals and families — all in the comfort and familiarity of your home.
Specialty nursing services are available from visiting nurses, including enterostomal therapy, continence care and wound care; peritoneal dialysis; and palliative care. We also serve medically fragile paediatric clients, who we see either in their homes or in the school. Shifts range from a full day or overnight to shorter respite shifts or providing insulin and blood glucose testing for children in the school during their nutrition break.
