|Home Care Plus

Visiting Nurse and Community Health’s private-pay subsidiary, Home Care Plus, provides the continuity of care and professional services for patients who need assistance beyond what health insurance programs generally cover. Health care providers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our services are designed specifically to ensure patients receive the highest quality care, while maintaining an independent dignified life in the home. From registered nurses to companions and home health aides, we give the compassionate home health care our patients deserve.

In keeping with this philosophy, VNCH also offers HomMed, a state-of-the-art telemedicine device that is placed in the home and accurately registers blood pressure and oxygen saturation levels, pulse, weight and temperature every day. Results are transmitted to a central station at VNCH and one of our registered nurses interprets the readings, logs them and calls the patient’s physician, if necessary. This provides great peace of mind for both the patient and his/her family. 

A physician’s referral is not needed for privately paid Home Care Plus, unless it’s under insurance, in which case a physician referral is needed.
