Help at Home: In-Home Services

Providing the Support You Need to Stay in Your Home

When given a choice, most seniors would like to remain in their own homes and communities as they age. The In-Home Services Program of VNA makes this choice possible.

Through its "Client's Choice" approach to care, clients and their families have an active voice in care decisions. At a time when seniors may be experiencing losses such as physical decline, shrinking social networks and decreased privacy, the In-Home Services Program of VNA offers support, quality care and a sense of independence.

The In-Home Services Program of VNA offers its clients high quality, trusted services. VNA Home Care Aides are fully insured, bonded, thoroughly screened and supervised by RN Nurse Supervisors. The VNA In-Home Services team of Registered Nurses, Home Care Aides and Schedulers offer the following services to support a goal of continuing independence at home or in a senior living community:
