Care Begins with Your Call

Care is the catalyst for everything we do, every life we touch, and everyone we serve.

Atlantic Visiting Nurse supports patients recovering from illness or surgery, those coping with chronic conditions, families facing end-of-life care, and older adults needing help to remain living independently.

Atlantic Visiting Nurse Services

Home Health

We help patients regain health, stay out of the hospital, and remain living independently at home. Our personalized care supports patient’s recovery from surgery or illness, those returning home from the hospital or rehabilitation facility, and those managing life with a chronic illness or living with a disability. 

Hospice

Our program opens the door to a quality of life that may otherwise be unavailable for patients living with advanced illnesses. The primary goal of our services is to provide support, assistance and guidance to the patient and their family — whether at home or at a long-term care facility. We understand that every moment is precious during this difficult time. Our focus is not only on medical support, but on the emotional, social and spiritual needs of the entire family. 

Adult Day Center

The Adult Day Center, a social adult day program model, offers a warm and supervised environment for older adults to engage in a meaningful day filled with activity and socialization.

Private Care

At Atlantic Private Care our home care nurses and aides provide one-on-one care in the NJ Counties of Morris, Essex, Union, Warren, Somerset and Sussex that is designed to meet your needs.

Home Health FAQs

My doctor has ordered home health care. Can I request Atlantic Visiting Nurse - Home Health?

Yes. By federal law, patients have the right to choose their home health care provider. 

Is Atlantic Visiting Nurse certified by Medicare?

Yes. Atlantic Visiting Nurse is a highly rated, award winning agency certified by the Joint Commission regulatory agency as a Medicare provider, and licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health. 

How does a patient begin receiving services?

Patients can be referred by their primary care physician; a hospital, rehabilitation, or assisted living facility; or by family, friends, clergy, or as a self-referral. Before services can begin, the patient’s physician must write an order that prescribes home care. For self-referrals, our Care Success Center staff will be happy to contact the patient’s physician. Once Atlantic Visiting Nurse receives the order, we’ll contact the insurance company and determine if authorization is required and what services are covered. We’ll notify the patient of any co-pays or deductibles and schedule the first appointment. 

What’s the difference between home health care and personal care services?

Personal care services aid individuals with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, feeding and meal preparation, grocery shopping, and money management. 

Home health care provides physician-prescribed, licensed nursing and therapy services to individuals dealing with chronic conditions, recovering from surgery or illness, and who can avoid hospital admission. 

I heard that patients must be homebound to receive services. What does that mean?

To qualify for Medicare, a patient must have “homebound” status. This does not mean that the patient can never leave the home. Rather, it’s defined as a general inability to leave home due to illness or injury. For patients to receive “homebound” status, absences from home must be infrequent and of short duration due to the taxing nature of leaving the house.
