15th Annual SBYC Charity Regatta

VNA Health (formerly Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care) was once again honored to be the beneficiary of the 15th Annual Santa Barbara Yacht Club (SBYC) on Saturday, September 7, 2019. The Charity Regatta was an exciting day filled with competitive races, family fun and enthusiastic spectators and supporters coming together to sustain a worthy cause. Each year, racing boats invite “Celebrity Skippers” as guests on their boats, and this year we celebrated the VNA Health Rehab Team.

The VNA Health Rehab Team consists of a combination of more than 30 Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech and Language Pathologists. They work diligently to help patients enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments, disabilities, recover from surgery, or live with a chronic challenge. They give thoughtful treatments and care to over 2,000 patients, and make over 21,000 visits each year to help them live well. The Rehab Team also utilizes the VNA Health Loan Closet, which rents equipment free of charge to over 4,000 individuals a year, to aid in recovery or live independently. Scroll down to see our amazing Rehab Team!

Over the past 15 years, SBYC has raised more than $1.5 million to benefit VNA Health. With your support, VNA Health is able to provide compassionate and trusted care for patients and families at home, wherever home they reside and call home, regardless of their ability to pay.
