Community Nurses


The Community Nurses are available for home visits for older Hartland residents for assessment, support and referral to appropriate resources so residents can age in place, at home or at a residence of their choice.

The Nurse can be a contact for families who live far from Hartland, assuring them that all is well if it is and alerting them to issues or conditions that need attention. The home visits will be of continuing support to elders returning to their Hartland homes after a hospitalization or rehab. The Community Nurses do not provide direct medical care.

One of a growing number of Community Nurses in the Upper Valley, our program is supported by the Town of Hartland, Upper Valley Community Nursing Program, the Ottauquechee Health Foundation and private donations. We welcome your referrals and financial support. Please go here to offer your support.

Be part of the team that does not let any Hartland neighbor “fall through the cracks!”
