Are there home care nurses available in Korea?

There are no agencies specialising in English home care nursing, but there are agencies that provide home care services. Whether you get someone who can speak English will depend on whether or not there are any registered with a specific agency at a particular time and if the agency has actually asked any of the nurses on its list the language question. 

Because most Korean study English in school for at least 10 years, most can read instructions written in basic English, even if they are not comfortable speaking and have some difficulty understanding.

The Helping Hands Agency is one of the few that provides nursing care for expats. Note that not all caregivers will speak English. 
Helping Hands: 02-3661-6567. The average cost for a basic caregiver is about W70,000 (NB the rate will vary depending on the care required). You will need a Korean speaker to make the arrangements with Helping Hands.
