Isolated by COVID-19, making it even more difficult for them to receive the care and services they profoundly need, our veterans need your help now more than ever.
VNSNY is thankful to our veterans and proud to support their health care needs.
In 2020, we expanded veterans community outreach to include home care services. The Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) Veterans Programs provide veterans and their loved ones with a skilled veteran liaison, who will assist and guide them with accessing the many benefits and services available through the Veterans Administration (VA).
As part of the We Honor Veterans program, VNSNY provides culturally sensitive community-based hospice care to address the unique physical, emotional and logistical needs of military veterans and their families at end of life. In addition to providing clinical care, we help connect veterans and their families with community resources and veteran-specific benefits. We have special training to address the needs of combat veterans from all wars (with a focus on Vietnam War–era veterans) and to deal with service-connected disabilities among all veterans of the United States military, and we are able to hold bedside recognition ceremonies that honor their military service.

We are in this together, and together we will stand strong.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a once-in-a-lifetime global crisis—and in times of crisis, the Visiting Nurse Service of New York is quick to mobilize to protect society’s most vulnerable. For both COVID-positive and non-COVID patients in these challenging times, VNSNY’s 13,000+ courageous workers have been hard at work delivering care in the place people most want to be: their homes.
VNSNY frontline workers are in this together, and together we will stand strong for New York. During COVID, home care has been the bridge that makes it possible for patients who were seriously ill in the ICU to transition back home, where they can continue to steadily recover their health and return to their lives.
