Community HealthCare and Hospice

The qualified staff of Community HealthCare and Hospice helps people of all ages creatively face the challenge of chronic illness or aging in their own home. Through individualized services, we work closely with the physician and family to provide total care. A nurse is available by phone, to provide full 24-hour coverage and address the needs of any client at any time.  Visits are made on an intermittent basis. A professional staff nurse has primary responsibility for each client, ensuring that each individual's care is personalized and beneficial regardless of the length of care or changes which may occur in his or her prescribed treatment.
