Understanding home care

Professional home health care includes a broad range of care and services to help you regain or maintain your independence and remain safely in the comfort of your home.

What is home care? How is care paid for? What should I expect?

All the Ways We Care

VNSNY Home Care Services

Whether you need skilled nursing care following a planned surgery or an unexpected accident, physical therapy after a stroke, or help managing a chronic illness, we’re here for you every day of the year.


VNSNY Private Care Services

Through our private care affiliate, Partners in Care, we provide personalized, expert, private-pay home care services when, where, and how you need them beyond what’s covered by medical insurance, for supplemental short-term assistance or on-going long-term care.


VNSNY Hospice and Palliative Care

VNSNY provides comfort, relief, and peace of mind to individuals and families facing advanced or life-limiting illness. We are here for you every step of the way.


VNSNY Community Programs

VNSNY has several community-based programs designed to support at-risk children and young parents, family caregivers, and other vulnerable populations.


Learn about Payment Options

Since every individual’s situation is unique, VNSNY is here to help you figure out how to pay for your in-home care services. Our team can help you find out if the services you need are covered by insurance or another benefit. And, for services that are not covered, we can connect you to private care options that are personally paid for out of pocket or through long-term care insurance.
