Community Nursing Services is the Winner of Best of State for Excellence in 2010
Community Nursing Services also known as CNS is the oldest home care agency providing services in the state of Utah. CNS is the only free standing, not for profit home care agency in this state. We are Medicare, Medicaid certified and are the preferred provider for many insurance companies. CNS is a CERTIFIED HOSPICE Agency and United Way agency, providing skilled nursing, physical therapy, speech therapy, infusion therapy, home health aide services in the home, under the supervision of the clients' physician. CNS contracts with the aging waiver and alternatives program to provide needed home care for our elderly community requiring light house keeping and personal cares.

OUR Mission Statement: Created by employees and adopted by the board of trustees
We create moments and experiences that heal individuals and families, by providing compassionate care, and by putting health, dignity, comfort and well-being first. We are a non-profit organization and it is our privelege to serve you and the communities in which we live.

The CNS Annual United Way Fund Drive
As a non-profit organization CNS has a long history with United Way, with the generosity of the communities where we live and work. We can continue to help those who can't always help themselves.

Senior Wish Program: Caring for Utah's Seniors, One Wish at a Time
The Community Nursing Services Senior Wish Program was created to help fulfill the personal life wishes of Utah's seniors. At CNS, we believe every life matters and we strive to enrich the lives of our elders. Our reputation for excellence is founded in the belief that caring and compassion never go out of style. Granting wishes is our way of saying thank you to a generation of hard working and independent seniors for their years of dedication and commitment.

We need your help! Together, we have an opportunity to make Senior Wishes come true by working with local businesses, community groups, organizations and volunteers. Please consider supporting the Community Nursing Services Senior Wish Program by donating your time and/or financial support.

Ways to Make Senior Wishes Come True: Financial Gifts, In-Kind Gifts, Gifts of Time and Talent
All donations are tax deductible as charitable contributions under 501(c)(3) guidelines. Material items such as hotel rooms, gas cards, airline tickets, groceries, restaurant certificates, catering services, event tickets, personal services, merchandise, transportation services, outdoor activities and unused gift cards can all be used to help fulfill Senior Wishes. CNS depends on volunteers to enhance and improve the quality of life for our seniors. There are several meaningful volunteer opportunities requiring various skills and time commitments.

Do you know someone who would volunteer to help make a wish come true.... a good cook, local celebrity or athlete, photographer, musician, seamstress or maybe a limo driver? All contributions are very much appreciated by Community Nursing Services Senior Wish Program.

For more information and to find out how you can help make our Senior Wish Program a success, please contact our CNS office in your community. For Moab it's (435)259-0466.
