“My mother suffers from emotional and mental ailments that hinder her ability to understand the importance of taking her medications. In addition, her reactions and responses to certain people and situations create a barrier to improving her quality of life. However, she has responded exceptionally well to psychiatric nurse Joel. She looks forward to his weekly visits and I can depend on his assessment and feedback. Joel and VNSNY have been absolutely incredible during a very difficult time for me and my mother.” —Andrea, a family caregiver in Westchester
