VNA Home Health Services

Hospitals have their place in the health care system. But most patients agree: Being at home is far better.

That's why VNA Health Care delivers the medical treatment you need in the comfort and convenience of your home.

Whether you're recovering from surgery, are chronically ill, or have a life-threatening illness, VNA has a home health care service to deliver the care you need.

VNA Home Health is medical treatment provided by nurses, therapists, and other professionals in the comfort of your home. Our goal is to help you regain independence and live with dignity and comfort.

When you are a VNA Home Health patient, a registered nurse

  • Makes regular visits to provide care in your home
  • Coordinates the services of other health care professionals
  • Keeps you, your family, and your doctor well-informed about your progress and plan of care

VNA Home Health services include:

  • Health assessment and care planning
  • Skilled nursing and home health aide care
  • Physical, occupational and speech-language therapies
  • Medical social work
  • Nutrition assessment/monitoring and meal planning by a registered dietitian
  • Chronic Disease Management using VNA Telemonitoring
  • VNA Bridge Care

Talk to a VNA Home Care Intake Nurse at (630) 978-2532.

VNA nurse specialties include:

  • Home Infusion (IV) Therapy - antibiotic and hydration therapy, total parenteral nutrition, pain management and chemotherapy
  • Wound Care (Enterostomal Therapy) - Special care for ostomies, wounds, incisions, pressure ulcers and incontinence
  • Mother, Baby & Pediatric Care - pre- and post-natal care for high-risk pregnancies and high-risk pediatrics
  • Advanced Nurse Practice Service - collaborative physician/nurse care where nurses evaluate, assess, diagnose and treat patients, providing prescriptions when needed
  • Palliative Care - medical, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual support for those and families of those in the final stages of illness

VNA Chronic Disease Management uses a daily, in-home health Tele-Monitoring system along with home nursing care to improve management and maintenance of chronic disease for patients with serious health conditions such as:

  • heart failure
  • pulmonary disease
  • diabetes

What is Tele-monitoring?

It is an interactive, easy-to-use communication system that monitors

  • blood pressure
  • blood sugar
  • pulse
  • Other vital signs

Here's how it works:

  • A clear, friendly voice asks you questions.
  • Your answers and readings are delivered securely over the phone to VNA within 30 seconds.
  • Your VNA nurse watches closely for changes in your health status and provides care if needed.

Tele-monitoring delivers peace of mind by detecting health changes early on, providing opportunity for immediate corrective action while the patient remains at home.

Using Tele-Monitoring, VNA can help you improve your health and have fewer hospital admissions and ER visits due to your chronic condition.

VNA Chronic Disease Management is a free service provided for VNA patients.
