Care—close to home.
You're not alone.
Care, Coordination, Advocacy
The Upper Valley Community Nursing Project helps older adults receive continuity of care and remain independent—at home and in their community.
Our project is based on a holistic philosophy of nursing, which dates back to the mid 19th century—a time when nurses focused on the health of individuals, families, and groups within a community.
Our focus is on the health of older people drawn together by such commonalities as location, religious affiliation, social connections, or fraternal association.
Our goal is to support existing and additional communities in initiating and sustaining Community Nursing Programs.

WE WILL REMEMBER
Dr. Dennis McCullough, Co-Director of UVCNP, died unexpectedly on June 3, 2016. His philosophy was the foundation for the Community Nursing Project:
"Shaped by common sense and kindness, grounded in traditional medicine yet receptive to alternative therapies, Slow Medicine is a measured treatment of ‘less is more’ that improves the quality of patients' extended late lives without bankrupting their families financially or emotionally. Expensive state-of-the-art medical interventions do not necessarily deliver superior outcomes. Gentle, personal care often yields better results, not only for elders in late life, but for the families who love them.” —Dennis McCullough
