Mission: VNA was chartered by an Act of Congress in 1900 to provide nursing care in the home. Today, VNA offers comprehensive nursing and therapy to adults needing support for any number of illnesses or injuries. Our home care team of nurses, therapists, social workers and home health aides care for people suffering with chronic conditions like diabetes or congestive heart failure; help stroke victims regain mobility and speech; or support an accident victim recovery from surgery. Our goal is to bring the highly skilled staff and services of a hospital into the home, assuring an individualized care plan that meets the patient's needs.
My mother received home IV therapy on two different occassions. I was there for the first nursing visit where the nurse showed my mother how to change the IV bags and to clean the tubes. It was a little intimidating, but the nurse was very thorough and kind. It was really a wonderful experience especially after spending time in the hospital. It raised my mother's spirits to be healing at home. VNA and the nurse were very nice to work with.
