At VNSNY, we are committed to providing expert and compassionate home health care of the highest quality. But we also know that healthy individuals need healthy communities, so we have several innovative community-based specialty support services and programs for at-risk children and young parents, family caregivers, and those who might fall through the safety net.
VNSNY offers services for infants and children who require home care for short-term (acute) and long-lasting (chronic) conditions, as well as for medically fragile children, children who may have developmental issues or special needs, and for high-risk families.
VNSNY offers a wide range of Community Mental Health programs that serve the mentally ill, provide geriatric mental health case management, and offer mental health counseling to children and families. The goal: to get consistent, coordinated care to the individuals who need it and their families. Many of these programs are collaborations between VNSNY and state or city agencies, others are partnerships with health and behavioral health agencies.
VNSNY works with community organizations and care providers to offer targeted programs that meet the needs of neighborhoods throughout New York, and to seek out residents who would benefit from these services but might not know help is available or where to turn for assistance.
