How can we help?
VNSNY can provide home health care when, where, and how you need it. We offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of every generation, from infants to seniors, regardless of diagnosis or health condition. We can provide skilled nursing after or to prevent a hospitalization, assistance with daily activities to age safely at home (even when battling several chronic diseases), and specialized care for specific conditions.
Expert care can make such a difference that research shows patients who don’t get home health care are twice as likely to go back into the hospital as those who do.¹ And that’s something we all want to avoid.
Our staff reflects the diversity of New York City, and we provide culturally capable care for our patients who live in the New York City metropolitan area, but are from other countries and cultures. At VNSNY we also work closely with our community, hospital, and insurance partners to create specialized services by an interprofessional team that will allow you or your loved one to remain safe and healthy at home.
Services from VNSNY can help to make the transition from hospital to home as easy as possible, with no gaps in your care or your treatment.
VNSNY offers skilled nursing care to patients at home after a hospitalization to due to a scheduled surgery or an accidental injury, or to individuals who need help managing chronic conditions to avoid hospital stays.
Skilled, licensed therapists provide physical, occupational, and speech therapy to aid in recovery and to increase strength, flexibility, range of motion, and coordination.
VNSNY’s Behavioral Health and Dementia Management Program can help you help your loved one by addressing the emotional and behavioral symptoms that often accompany physical illness. Specially trained doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, clinical specialists, and home health aides work with you, your loved one, and your loved one’s primary doctor to manage anxiety, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
A Welcoming Home Care Environment for LGBT Older Adults: VNSNY is committed to treating every patient with empathy, courtesy and respect. All home care and hospice staff have received LGBT cultural sensitivity training from SAGECare.
When your doctor orders Telehealth services for you, it may be because your health needs to be closely monitored until your condition stabilizes. Telehealth can detect changes in your vital signs early, so that your care can be adjusted so you can avoid complications and reduce the possibility of a hospital stay.
