Home Health Care is good medicine and that's why the Visiting Nurse Association continues its over 50 year commitment to providing quality, state-of the-art health care at home. Being with family and friends in familiar surroundings has a positive effect on patients recovering from illness or surgery. In fact, studies have proven that patients recuperate more quickly in their home environment.
Developments in medical treatments, such as infusion therapies, have resulted in the capability to receive in-home treatment in lieu of hospitalization. Additionally, many procedures previously performed only in the hospital setting and requiring in-hospital recuperation can now be performed as out-patient procedures with in-home health care support.
