Home Health Nurses New York Can Count On
Nursing New York Back to Health
As part of your multidisciplinary team, the home health nurse provides medical care to you in your home. The roles and duties of the home health nurse are similar to that of a hospital nurse with skill sets and education being the same. The nurse visits will include assessments, patient and family education, and care of any medical devices or concerns. Depending on the level of care you need, the home health nurse may visit once a day, once a week, or less frequently.
At Angels on Call Homecare, we staff registered nurses (RN) and licensed vocational nurses (LVN) to meet your needs. Whether you have complex home medical needs, chronic disease that needs managing, or acute wounds, our nurses are here to help. Contact us to schedule your evaluation and find your team of angels.

An Angel to Watch Over You
Home health nurses are licensed and skilled medical professionals who can administer advanced care and perform minor procedures in your home. If you or your loved one is using home health services to manage chronic diseases, including COPD, CHF, diabetes, hypertension, or any other disease that affects your daily living, you will have a home health nurse on your care team who will monitor and assess your condition with regular assessments. Your home health nurse will manage and coordinate your care, medications, equipment, and anything else you may need. Your home health nurse will also provide education and safety planning for you and your family in addition to providing personal care services and mobility assistance as needed.
