Founded in 1952 as a Visiting Nurse Association, VNAcare stands apart from other hospice providers.
Visiting Nurse Associations (VNA) began in the late 1800s as charity-based agencies providing care and health education to underserved and underprivileged communities. Many of these mission-driven VNAs expanded over the years throughout the country, including VNAcare.
VNAcare was established with the same spirit as the first Visiting Nurse Association, and our roots run deep as a non-profit charitable agency dedicated to providing compassionate care to the communities we serve.
Throughout our history, it has been a privilege to provide expert care to countless patients and families. We are proud to have an exceptional team of physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals to meet the needs of our diverse communities with compassion at the heart of all we do.
We believe patients facing the end of life deserve the opportunity to live as fully as possible, on their own terms, while sharing their final journey with loved ones. Since our founding as a Visiting Nurse Association in 1952, this belief has guided our services, which stand apart from other hospice providers.
Our non-profit mission allows us to spend more time with patients and empower them with control over their care. We answer to the community, not to shareholders. This allows us the flexibility to provide more compassionate and personalized care.
We always seek to help patients avoid hospitalization and to feel that they are in control of their own care. We specifically focus on each patient’s needs and develop an individualized plan of care based on their wishes. Our staff is experienced in the challenges of hospice care and supporting a patient wherever they call home. Since the need to reduce pain and provide both emotional and physical support is so vital, we provide patients with palliative care services as part of our commitment to patients and their loved ones.
