Reviews for Visiting Nurse Service Of Newport & Bristol Counties

Rating: 5 stars  

VNS was called on when my Dad was dying, I called them at 10am on a Sunday Morning, they were at my Dad's home by 100pm, and all services were in place including a hospital bed, medications to keep him comfortable and support people to call by 7pm the same day.
The support, the guidance and the after death support was amazing! I couldn't ask for better care for my Dad or for my family!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The VNS of Newport and Bristol Counties is the local community resource for home nursing care, home based physical and occupational therapy, hospice, and all kinds of community public health programs such as flu clinics, diabetes education classes, Alzheimer's support groups, and wellness programs. The staff are caring, professional, and compassionate...and they are members of the very communities where they serve. The goal of VNS is to keep patients in the comfort of their own homes rather than in hospitals or nursing homes and to ensure that they are safe and healthy in their homes. One of the programs they supervise is personal emergency response, which is a Lifeline product that helps seniors get help immediately if an emergency should occur in their home when no one is around. VNS also serves the very youngest and most vulnerable: newborns who are at risk after birth. VNS is a very relevant and worthwhile non-profit that is part of the important safety-net for the most vulnerable members of Newport and Bristol Counties. VNS provides services to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.
