The Heart and Hands of Home Care

A private, non-profit home health agency

Certified & Licensed Home Health Care

Care nurtures the human spirit as well as the human body…


Our Philosophy at
Visiting Nurse Service
of Ithaca & Tompkins County

Home health care is more than physical well being it is about relationships, compassion, support and trust. At Visiting Nurse Service we understand how important and meaningful it is to be home with family and friends including our four-legged ones during recovery from illness or surgery and beyond.

Loneliness, helplessness and boredom cause the human spirit to suffer. That is why the staff at Visiting Nurse Service all shares in the philosophy that genuine care must involve loving companionship, active involvement by the patient and their care partners in all decision making and the belief that each phase of human development should be honored, celebrated and valued – not seen as a decline of life.
