Living with a chronic condition almost certainly means some major changes in your life, and although it can be a challenge, you are still in control of your quality of life. Being able to self-manage a chronic condition, in partnership with the VNA, can minimize the severity of your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
How we can help
We will help you develop the skills you need to help you feel comfortable with managing medications, tracking important health care information, and implementing healthy strategies to better manage your chronic disease and achieve the best quality of life possible.
The VNA helps patients with chronic illnesses such as:
- Heart failure
- Breathing/respiratory challenges
Our team is trained in chronic care and takes a patient-centered approach that helps both patients and their families learn ways to manage the illness. Through teaching and education, patients and families will better understand self-management skills that will help them feel more confident to live a healthier lifestyle.
