Nursing Services

Wound Care

VON nurses provide a full range of wound care for wounds resulting from surgery or trauma, as well as for chronic wounds.

Palliative Care

VON Middlesex-Elgin delivers compassionate care and comfort to clients facing death and to their families and caregivers.

Intravenous Care

VON nurses can provide a wide range of intravenous care. More and more types of intravenous therapies are being offered at home, whether people need fluids, medication or even chemotherapy.

Enterostomal Care

After ostomy surgery, VON nurses provide support to clients training them to care for their ostomy and to adjust to a new way of life with minimal disruption. VON enterostomal nurses are also specialists in skin and wound care and act as consultants to other staff members at the Middlesex-Elgin site and throughout the community.

Paediatric Services

Trained staff offers paediatric care in the areas of central life management, wound management and medication administration. Respite care for families may also be provided.

Respiratory Care

VON nurses provide ongoing care for clients with chronic obstructive lung disease, emphysema, cystic fibrosis and other respiratory conditions. The focus of respiratory care is to stabilize the client, decrease their visits to the hospital and shorten their hospital stays.


Services may be funded through the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) or provided to a client privately. Please contact CCAC or your insurance provider to determine if you qualify for coverage.
