The Home Care Treatment Center in south Regina provides all Home Care nursing services for mobile clients. These services include wound dressing changes and assessments, suture and staple removal, catheter monitoring and changes, medication management including prepour and preload, injection therapy and IV therapy, both administration and maintenance.
