PHorum

PHorum is Santa Barbara’s annual healthcare symposium where national, regional and local health care leaders share and discuss relevant issues that impact our community. As our communities continue to live within COVID-19 Pandemic environment, this year’s PHorum will be held at local West Wind Drive-In Theatre where safe social distancing can be maintained. VNA Health and Emmy Award-winning Actress Jane Seymour invite you to the 8th annual PHorum: Perspectives in Health Care. Jane Seymour will present the documentary, I’ll Be Me, a touching film about Glen Campbell — Oscar® Nominee, GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, and Country Music Hall of Fame member — and his personal journey with Alzheimer’s Disease as he embarked on his nationwide “Goodbye Tour”.

20th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon

20th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon. Celebrating our Honored and Remembered Mothers for the Past, Present and Future.
SAVE THE DATE - Friday, May 7, 2021

We are delighted to recognize all the mothers we have honored and remembered over the last 20 years. They have been the caregivers of our community. We also appreciate our wonderful Emcees over the years, Catherine Remak and Andrew Firestone.
VNA Health was founded by an exceptional woman, Marian Watts, along with other caregivers over 111 years ago. Our community has been blessed to have remarkable women who have helped to shape its foundation, substance, wellbeing and permanence. We gratefully honor them.

Angels Among Us

Every year, VNA Health hosts our annual Angels Among Us remembrance services in December – one in Buellton and two in Santa Barbara. Angels Among Us is a special offering over the holidays to honor and remember those who live in our memories. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, our 2020 Angels Among Us service became a virtual service including music, heartwarming reflections, and an opportunity to remember loved ones at home and online in our Virtual Candlelight Tribute. During the Holidays, the need for bereavement support is greatest, as memories and traditions can bring up grief and loss. We invite you join us online at www.vna.health/2020angelsamongus
