About this organization






To provide health care & related services in the home; to help a patient be more independent & recover more quickly, reducing the need for & the cost of care; to attend to the elderly by meeting social & physical needs; to provide hospice care for patients & their families and to train those caregivers.


VNA has been providing home health services since it was established in 1920. These services have evolved based on community needs. A community voluntary board of directors provides an annual evaluation of services based on community needs. Home health is a core service and has become critically important with helping to keep people in their homes and out of institutions where costs are significantly greater. Technology - telehealth monitoring, specifically - was added six years ago and continues to expand due to the preemptive care benefits. The daily vital signs monitoring allows for early recognition of chronic disease exacerbation, thus earlier treatment and reduction in hospitalizations. There is no funding source for this expensive technology or funding source for staff to operate it. Community donations along with operational efficiencies have helped support it. The home health care staff provided 1,463 patients with over 24,890 visits by nurses, therapists (PT, ST, OT) and nurse aides in 2014.
