Private Care Services

Whether active in the prime of life or elderly and living with physical and cognitive impairments, the vast majority of people find a special kind of reassurance in the comfort of their own home. However, maintaining the comforts of home for a loved one who requires constant support and supervision can take its toll. Even the most devoted caregiver needs a helping hand and respite time. That is why many families turn to the Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA) Private Care Services division for help when their needs exceed allowable Medicare and private insurance parameters.

  3. A caring organization that will work with you to prioritize your needs and establish an effective care plan to suit your lifestyle and resources

All VNA Private Care clients receive:

Hourly assistance
Are you in need of a "time out" from the stress of being a primary caregiver or a few hours each week to run errands outside the home? Or, perhaps a loved one requires assistance with grooming and housekeeping tasks or simply longs for companionship and a break from the isolation of being homebound?

VNA can provide a caring certified home health aide four or more hours per day for one to seven days each week.
Our certified home health aides from the Private Care division of the Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey are a welcome source of encouragement and support for shut-ins throughout Morris County and neighboring communities, as well as providers of practical household assistance. Our aides offer essential, uplifting forms of human interaction including:

  1. Socialization and conversation
  2. Letter writing assistance
  3. Reading aloud of books and periodicals
  4. Assistance reading and responding to mail
  5. Walking and other light exercise in and around the home

A visiting nurse and Private Care representative will work with you to create a plan consistent with your requirements and resources.

Live-in Care
Do you need full-time assistance caring for a loved one while you are at work, parenting or attending to other day-to-day activities? Or, perhaps a parent or other elderly relative wants to remain in the comfort and dignity of their long-time residence but is no longer capable of being alone.

The VNA of Northern NJ can provide full-time, live-in care. To qualify for live-in services, you must be able to provide room, board and meals.

"I'd known of the VNA's good reputation for years. When I learned that they now offer live-in care, I knew that was where I needed to turn. Our aide is very calm and has a wonderful relationship with my mother. She keeps Mom well groomed and helps with her daily exercises. She's also a great cook!"
