Palliative care is the model for quality, compassionate care

Palliative Care

Palliative Care Services by the Visiting Nurse Association Serving Morris and Hunterdon Counties, New Jersey

Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, hospice and palliative care involve a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the person's needs and wishes. The goals of palliative care are to improve the quality of a seriously ill person's life by treating symptoms causing physical and/or emotional pain, or suffering.

As a leading provider of comprehensive home health care for more than a century, palliative care is within the spectrum of services that Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA) has provided for many years. We are uniquely qualified to seamlessly transition patients from traditional home health care to hospice and palliative care when needed.

VNA palliative care encompasses:

  • An individualized plan developed in coordination with a patient's personal physician and a medical doctor who oversees our program
  • Compassionate, skilled nursing assistance from nurses who hold nationally recognized certifications in palliative and hospice care
  • Support, when needed, from certified home health aides, social workers, nutritionists and other VNA professionals who are specially trained and devoted to easing the burdens of the seriously ill and their loved ones
  • A gentle and comforting transition to VNA Hospice care led by the same team that has provided palliative care plus additional VNA representatives if/when warranted and requested by patient and their family

For further information, please call 1-800-WE-VISIT.
