Skilled Nursing Care at Home

If you’re just home from the hospital or struggling with a chronic medical problem, our licensed, experienced nurses are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Once your doctor authorizes care, a nurse will come to your home to do a complete evaluation and create a healthcare plan. Thereafter, you’ll receive care as often as required to effectively manage your condition.

What is skilled nursing?

It can take many forms, but is all provided by licensed, experienced RNs and LPNs. For some patients, it’s post-operative care, for example, to change dressings or remove drains. Others may require assistance with medication, advanced wound care, or perhaps a catheter insertion. All patients receive instruction on the best self-care techniques.

Whom we help:

Any Connecticut resident with care needs due to a chronic or acute illness. For information on inpatient skilled nursing, please see Long-term Care Services.

What to expect:

Whenever possible, you will be cared for by the same nurse. Your nurse can also help you receive other in-home care (for example for therapy or wound care), and make arrangements for help with bathing, or for in-home monitoring. All of your home caregivers will stay in touch and exchange the latest information about your condition via computer.

The Masonicare difference:

Masonicare offers the widest array of home healthcare services to the greatest number of Connecticut residents.
