VNH provides a comprehensive range of home health services, focused on caring for you where you want to be – at home. Our team partners with you, your family, and your physician to ensure that you receive personalized quality care. Patients heal faster at home, but without adequate support, could end up back in the hospital soon after discharge. Our various clinical specialties provide a wide range of care to allow patients with medical conditions to stay at home.
Words fail me when I try to express my gratitude for your services. The nurses and aides rate five stars. They made possible my mother’s stay in her own home these last several years, and my caring for her.
Our nursing staff help patients recover at home after an injury, illness, surgery, or complications related to chronic conditions. In-home visits assess patients’ current condition and provide appropriate treatments and teaching in collaboration with their physicians, to support and encourage independence in their homes.
VNH offers Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy to support rehabilitation following surgery, stroke, injury or illness, and support independence in the days and months ahead.
Medical Social Work
In addition to medical care, social workers provide support to patient, family, and caregivers and facilitate access to community resources as needed to help them manage the challenges associated with illness or the care of a loved one.
Home Health Aide
Working under the direction of VNH nurses, Licensed Nursing Assistants (LNAs) help those in our care with basic health needs such as taking vital signs and obtaining specimens, as well as activities of daily living including moving from bed, dressing, eating, and bathing.
Have any questions?
Home care is available for people of all ages. This may include those who have been discharged from an inpatient facility, have been referred by their physician and have short term health needs, or who need assistance due to age or disability to remain home.
Many people are eligible for home care after a hospital stay in order to effectively heal and recover at home. If you think you may be eligible, call us directly for more information (800-575-5162).
Medicare and many other insurance providers cover all or a portion of care provided by certified home health care agencies, such as VNH. Check with your individual insurance carriers for your benefits.
A patient, family member, or physician can request service. However, Medicare, Medicaid, and most insurance plans require a physician’s referral for certified home health care.
If a physician does not see the need for skilled homecare but you still want services, a private-pay care plan may be right for you. Call for more information about Help at Home, VNH’s private duty care provider.
The staff [at VNH] have become friends, helpers, advisors, and morale boosters! My sincerest thanks to them and to your organization who make it possible for many of us to function happily in our own home in spite of handicaps.
