We promote health and independence through education and skilled care services. Education and support are at the heart of Home Care. Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice provides a well-qualified team of professions to provide nursing, rehabilitation services and medical social services to clients throughout new Hampshire’s Lakes Region.

Home care may be appropriate when:
  • Recovering from illness, accidents or surgery
  • Suffering from cardiac or respiratory problems
  • Coping with a chronic illness
  • Managing complex medications
  • When learning care giving skills
  • Following a recent hospitalization
Home care services may also be needed for:
  • Home safety concerns
  • Health education
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Case management
Home Care Services: The following services are available:
  • Registered Nurses provide support, care and education to members of our community who need disease or medication management, wound care, and IV therapy.
  • Licensed Nursing Assistants provide personal care for our clients who need assistance with bathing, dressing, personal care and activities of daily living.
  • Tele-Health remotely monitors a client’s health and helps patients gain greater control of their illness. The goal of our Tele-Health program is to keep patients out of the hospital and in the familiar surrounding of home.
  • I.V. Therapy allows the delivery of medicine, such as antibiotics, in the relative comfort of home. Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice registered nurses are certified in all aspects of the IV therapy they provide.
  • Rehabilitation Services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy services. Therapists help clients to maximize independence in the home and the community.
  • Certified Wound Care, wound care is a growing demand in home health care. Complicated surgical wounds, bed sores and ulcers from poor circulation are common among people living at home. Without proper clinical treatment, these wounds can grow, become infected and threaten a person’s ability to move around. Severe untreated wounds can lead to the loss of a limb or to life threatening infection. To address this growing demand, Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice employs a certified wound care nurse who has received special training in the most recent and successful methods to heal complex wounds.
  • Disease Management
  • Medication Management
  • Medical Social Services assist both Home Care and Hospice clients with the impact of an illness to include long term care issues, advance directives, caregiver stress and financial concerns.
