  • Why do I need delegation services?
    The level of cognitive and physical disability are the drivers of the decision whether a person needs delegation or not. In adult family homes, this is determined by a qualified assessor or the home's nurse delegator. Usually, the nurse is the one who performed the admission assessment, annual reassessment, or significant change reassessment. The decision is based on state rules and guidance.

    Yes, Peace at Home Nursing Services is fully insured and our nurses are licensed to practice nursing in Oregon and Washington.
