Caring for New Yorkers
in times of crisis since 1893
From prenatal to senior care, home health care services from the Visiting Nurse Service of New York help you recover from an illness or injury, regain or maintain independence, and manage your condition outside of a hospital or nursing home. Your services are provided by expert clinicians in the comfort of your home and may be covered through Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance.
Through our private care affiliate, Partners in Care, VNSNY offers personalized private-duty nursing and home care assistance for those who desire greater flexibility in the type or amount of home care services ordered by their physician or covered by insurance. Private care services also include respite care, appointment companions, care management, and corporate wellness programs.
When curative care is no longer an option, hospice and palliative care from VNSNY offers relief and peace of mind to individuals with life-limiting or advanced illness and their families. Our specially trained hospice staff provide care that ensures comfort, enhances quality of life, and preserves dignity and choice. Hospice also offers support, education, and counseling to family and loved ones.
VNSNY has cared for vulnerable New Yorkers for over 125 years, and our services are critical during this epidemic. Your donation helps provide support and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and more to our staff so they remain healthy, and able to care for those in need.Read More
