Getting well, staying well, at home.
“There’s no place like home.” Most people prefer the comfort and familiar surroundings of their home to recover and rehabilitate from an illness, injury or surgery, rather than staying in a hospital or nursing home. Working with the patient’s physician, getting well at home is possible with an interdisciplinary home health care team of visiting nurses, therapists, caregivers and social workers.
For more than a century, VNA Health has been the community’s leading nonprofit provider of home health care. Your VNA Health Home Health Care Team works with your physician to build a customized care plan to help you recover and regain your independence. We bring the healing home.
VNA Health is nationally accredited by The Joint Commission, state licensed, Medicare Certified, and authorized to bill insurance for all medically necessary services. We are also proud to have 4-Star Rating for Quality of Patient Care and 4-Star Rating for Patient Satisfaction by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Achieving a 4-star rating ranks VNA Health as above average in comparison to home health agencies nationwide, according to Medicare.gov.
Your VNA Health Home Care Team includes:
Registered Nurses assess your health and develop a plan that addresses your medical condition. This will include such things as taking your blood pressure, helping reduce pain and other symptoms, and teaching you and your family ways to manage your condition. Your nurse will also oversee and coordinate other services you may need.
Home Health Aides offer assistance with personal care such as bathing and dressing, light meal preparation, and simple household chores.
Physical Therapists assess your muscle strength, joint movement, balance and mobility and provide exercise programs and instruction to restore and enhance independence and safety.
Speech-Language Pathologists help you recover and improve your skills related to speaking, thinking, and swallowing.
Occupational Therapists provide instruction and training to help you improve or regain independence with daily activities such as bathing and dressing.
Medical Social Workers provide counseling for the social, emotional and financial aspects of your health condition. They may refer or coordinate community resources for support.

WORDS OF GRATITUDE
My experience with [VNA Health] was nothing short of fantastic. Mary Moore (Physical Therapist) was professional and concerned. It gave me comfort to know that they were all there to help me with my recovery, answer the questions that would certainly come up, and show me steps for getting stronger. Having [VNA Health] at my side was wonderful! I really can’t say enough about it.
