Nursing and Healthcare

Under the direction of the family physician, a nurse employed by the Lunenburg Health Service is available to provide health assistance in the home or at the Health Service office in Victoria.

Following instructions of the client’s physician, the nurse provides whatever healthcare may be necessary and guidance for family members caring for the patient between her visits.

Nursing services include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Monthly injections for chronic problems
  • Monitoring medications
  • Assisting the critically and chronically ill
  • Changing sterile dressings
  • Monitoring and teaching diabetic care
  • Assisting patients recently returned from the hospital

For these and any other needs arising out of illness or injury, the Lunenburg Health Service is ready to help.
