Choose the VNA
There may come a time in your life, or in the life of someone you love, when you become homebound after an illness or surgery. Whether it is for a few weeks, or a few years, hearing that you will not be able to leave the house can be a scary thing. It can be hard to give up the car keys and some of your freedoms, but the VNA can help you get back some of your independence.
Your Health, Your Choice
If you or a loved one needs in-home health care, the first step is to discuss this option with your physician, social worker, or hospital discharge planner, and ask for the VNA.
It is important to be aware that you have the right to select the home care provider of your choice, and that if you do not specify a particular agency, the doctor, social worker, or discharge planner will select one for you. In the case of hospitalization, once your physician has decided home care is an appropriate option for you, someone from the hospital will discuss home care and ask which agency you choose.
In keeping with our commitment to making the health care process easier for our patients and their caregivers, the VNA will create an individualized plan of care that best fits your needs and situation. We will even work directly with Medicare, your insurance company, and Medicaid to determine eligibility and coverage. In most cases, the VNA can initiate services within 24 hours of receiving a referral, unless otherwise specified.
