Community Nursing Care

What is Community Nursing? 

Community nursing, or also known as community health nursing, provides clinical and personal nursing services to members of the community in the comfort of their own home. Community nursing care aims to support your independence and your lifestyle in a safe and familiar environment, and is a great form of care to look into. 

Studies indicate that the availability of community nurses can help stimulate the healing and immunity capacity of a patient because of the empowerment and dignity they experience as a result of having access to these extra medical services.

As a community nursing care provider, Vital Home Health Services are able to provide you with a variety of services including community health nursing care after a hospital stay, which can include help with: 

  • Wound care
