Being at home and remaining independent is important for your health and happiness. Through ECHN’s home care services, we provide care for you or a loved one without having to leave your home. Care includes nursing medical services, therapy services and assistance with daily tasks.
For over 100 years, Visiting Nurse & Health Services of Connecticut (VNHSC) has been providing skilled home care services to the community. Dedicated to home health and community-based health care, VNHSC cares for families living in 25 communities throughout eastern and north central Connecticut.
Requests for care can be made by physicians and healthcare facilities, or even by a patient, family member or friend.
Skilled Nursing Services
Home care services are community services for individuals 18 years of age and older that are temporarily bound to their home and are in need of skilled nursing services. Registered nurses specializing in home care facilitate necessary services and work closely with patients, family members and physicians to determine an individualized care plan aimed to keep patients safe, comfortable, and well cared for so they are able to achieve their optimal level of functioning.
We have teamed up with DispatchHealth to bring same-day medical care to your home for urgent, but non-life-threatening health issues. DispatchHealth is an extension of your local ECHN medical care team, and their expert teams are ready to deliver high-quality, convenient care when you can’t leave home or when your doctor’s office is closed.
