Why Home Health Care?

  • Build lasting relationships with your patients
  • Use your clinical skills at the highest level

The future of health care is home care! Bring your medical/surgical, primary care, long term care, rehabilitation, palliative, and end-of-life care skills into the growing and exciting field of home care. More and more patients are deciding to heal where they feel most comfortable—at home. Enjoy a career that celebrates your exceptional skill and autonomy, applies your adaptability and critical thinking, and encourages you to perform at the highest clinical level.

Home health caregivers have the opportunity to work one-on-one with patients, developing that personal connection and lasting relationship.

Working in home care and hospice is as challenging as it is rewarding. A successful caregiver is capable, autonomous, and quick on their feet, with incredible attention-to-detail, clinical skills, and resilience. If this describes you, we encourage you to answer the call.

    What our staff say about working at VNH…

    The best part of the job is working in the home with patients on ‘their turf’ and not in a structured facility setting. The rewards are because the hard work that you put into working with our patients is directly proportional to the job satisfaction you get which is huge. VNH first of all is not for profit, so we take all patients regardless of ability to pay. However, we have very good resource and support staff and good benefits so that is why I would choose it over all other home care agencies. Because we work with people from all walks of life, we measure our successes with patients in small steps and all the staff supports each other in this understanding.

    Serving the community, and knowing at the end of the day that you are helping people and making them happy, that’s the most important thing.

    Providing rehab at home, I’ve learned to be innovative. We use things already in the home to aid treatment. It’s rewarding for them and me. I have a passion for helping people.

    My patients and my community! Hands down, this is why I love to go to work every day! I was born and raised in my treatment area and I love that I can give back to the community in some way.

    I feel I’m helping people function in the home and keeping them there as long as possible, much more rewarding than a nursing home setting and I’m outside in the air, not stuck in an office atmosphere with fake lights all day.

    I frequently tell people that I wish I had found this job years ago. Every job has its good and bad points, but over my 30 years of nursing, this is the job that I have loved the most. I enjoy working with our patients on a 1:1 basis. I use a variety of nursing skills and have had the opportunity to further my knowledge and have become wound care certified. I get to see people in their home environment which lets me understand better what their specific needs are. Working for VNH has truly made me a more knowledgeable and experienced nurse.

    I love being a Homecare Nurse because it affords me the opportunity to provide compassionate skilled care to patients where they want to be – in their home. When caring for my patients, I am reminded that we are all human beings and need kindness and a smile as much as we need wound care and/or any medical treatment. This is especially true for our most vulnerable and homebound patients. I believe that genuine kindness is a muscle we all must exercise daily and sharing kindness can make you healthier and happier.
