Welcome to Our Website
Our mission is to provide quality nursing care and related services to the sick in their own homes. We give priority to the poor, foster the integrity of family life and assist the elderly and chronically ill to stay at home. We provide these services without regard to the origin, creed or other status of the individual.
- The In-Home Nursing Program helps poor, frail seniors to remain in their homes safely, healthy and as independent as possible for as long as possible in the lowest-cost health care site – their home. In 2016, DHHA provided 162 In-Home patients with over 1,878 RN visits and 3,701 CNA visits.
Wellness Clinics at low-income senior housing sites provide prevention and early intervention nursing services all of which support and empower elderly people to be accountable for their own health. In 2016, DHHA served 562 at-risk seniors through 15 Wellness Clinics with 2,861 visits at no charge.
