Getting Started

Continuity of care for patients is important to achieving best outcomes and can be disrupted upon discharge from the hospital or a facility. The Visiting Nurse Association of Cape Cod works with physicians and care partners for the highest quality patient care. We improve lives by treating patients in their own homes while maintaining a safe environment and promoting health, healing and independence. We are your eyes and ears in the home.

Working with the physicians, we will assess needs and provide a network of services to help patients remain independent in their own home. An individual can qualify for home care if any of these circumstances exist.
