Have never heard of these sisters before. Really interesting. They serve the sick in their homes. Sisters making house calls! 

 

There are many such communities of sisters--or, at least, there were historically. One is the Nursing Sisters of the SIck Poor. Another is the Sisters, Servants of Mary; also, there are the Little Sisters of the Assumption.  Of course, many congregations have individual nurses and doctors doing this now. 

Alice McDermott's important 2017 novel, The Ninth Hour, focuses quite a lot on some home nursing sisters in New York.
