Great value: A nurse presence in the home can provide support for feeding, dressing, cleaning, and other activities of daily living. Extremely helpful during the process of rehab, as many patients will be unable to take care of themselves a visiting nurse in the home setting can allow other family members to pursue their individual responsibilities.
