Community Nurse

Commuity Nurse

New Canaan Human Services asks residents to check on older loved ones and neighbors, not only when a weather-related event occurs but also throughout the year. There may be those living right near you that are experiencing isolation and loneliness. If you are at all concerned about someone, the Town’s community health nurse offers monthly wellness visits to New Canaan’s disabled or senior residents that find it too difficult to leave their home. The following services are available during a visit:

•Blood Pressure Check

•Safety Assessment

•Discussion of Health Concerns and Education

•Evaluation of Needs and Referral

•Wellness Promotion

•Seasonal Influenza Vaccination

•Socialization for Residents Vulnerable to Isolation
