Home Health Care
There really is "no place like home" when recovering from an illness, injury or surgical procedure. It is the place where family, friends and familiar surroundings make you feel more comfortable – and you recover faster.
If you need skilled nursing care following a planned surgery or an unexpected accident, physical therapy after a stroke, or help managing a chronic illness, we’re here for you and your loved ones. Changes in health care, such as earlier hospital discharges, mean that it’s more likely you might need health services at home.
The Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Cape Cod provides care at home as well as care through community clinics and wellness education. Our clients range from newborns to elders and live from Plymouth to Provincetown and the Islands – a service area of about 1,300 square miles. We have been providing care to the Cape Cod community and beyond for more than 100 years.
Our goal is to provide peace of mind. We work with you to maximize your physical, cognitive, and behavioral well-being so you can live independently at home, in your community.
The VNA of Cape Cod is accredited by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, is Medicare/Medicaid certified, and accepts most private insurance.
