Home Nursing


When your recovery changes course, CGH Home Nursing can help.

Oftentimes, patients recovering from sickness or surgery no longer need the full services of a hospital or skilled nursing unit. However, they may still require ongoing care. If this is the case for you or a loved one, CGH Home Nursing & Home Infusion can provide expert care in the comfort of your home. Whether you require the services of a registered or licensed practical nurse, a home health aide, a physical, occupational or speech therapist, a medical social worker, or anodyne or infusion therapy, CGH Home Nursing & Home Infusion will provide highly qualified, caring professionals, on-call 24 hours a day.

CGH Home Nursing celebrated National Home Care Month

This past November, CGH Home Nursing joined home care providers across the state and country to mark National Home Care Month.  During November the home care community honors the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve. These heroic caregivers play a central role in our health care system and in homes across the nation. Thank you for all that you do.

We keep you pointed on the path toward wellness.

When you return home for extended care, CGH Home Nursing & Home Infusion focuses on making that process a positive and effective experience. Our fully licensed and certified caregivers work directly with your physician to develop a personalized home health plan and then perform an integral role to ensure a timely, successful recovery.

Our fully licensed and certified care givers know "there's no place like home."
