Hospice Care

“I only wish we had contacted VNSNY sooner about hospice care.”

Hospice care from VNSNY provides proactive, symptom management to individuals in advanced stages of illness.

Our Care Teams work together with the patient, family and the patient’s physician to: improve quality of life; relieve physical, emotional and spiritual distress; provide an individual plan of care; and give support to family members.

VNSNY offers hospice and palliative care services at home, in nursing homes, at our inpatient unit and in our residence.
