If you need a nurse to visit you in your home, you can call the District Nurse.

The Boothbay Region District Nursing Association was established in 1952 to provide in-home nursing care and instruction, support and assistance to the region’s residents. Nursing services are provided to those in need of them regardless of income.For those who have the financial ability to pay, they ask for a $10 donation per visit. But even that fee is waived if the patient really can’t afford it. The District Nursing Association is a nonprofit organization, supported by the towns of Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor and Southport.

If you are in need of nursing care, you can call Laurie Andrews, the District Nurse, for assistance at 207-633-5533.

Or, have your doctor refer you to the Community Paramedics, who will also make house calls.
