Thanks to the support from our amazing community, VNA Health is able to continue providing patient care services throughout the pandemic and maintaining all charitable, community care programs such as the Loan Closet, Community Palliative Care, Music Therapy, and Community Bereavement Care.

SPECIAL RECOGNITION & GRATITUDE FOR OUR 2020 CELEBRITY SKIPPERS

Each year at the Charity Regatta, SBYC honors a group of people that have made a commitment to the wellbeing of our Community. This year for our Celebrity Skippers we honor the Palliative Care Consultants of Santa Barbara, the doctors who provide hospital, hospice and outpatient palliative care services to VNA Health’s patients with care and dedication, including during these challenging times of Covid-19.  Meeting the complex, multifaceted needs of hospice patients and their families requires the teamwork of doctors, nurses, and many others. For more than 25 years VNA Health and this group of physicians have been teaming up to take great care of the Santa Barbara community,  including during these challenging times of Covid-19.

2019 CHARITY REGATTA

 
 

VNA Health 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.
