Nutritional Counseling
The VNA home care team includes registered dietitians. Upon the recommendation of a visiting nurse or a client's doctor, in-home consultations are available to assist in variety of ways:

  • Disease management?
    VNA dieticians provide nutritional education for clients who have been diagnosed with heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and other conditions that require dietary modifications.
  • Food/drug interactions?
    Our dieticians educate clients about possible interactions between their specific prescription medicines and certain foods.
  • Compromised oral intake?
    VNA dieticians provide their expertise to determine the nutritional needs of patients who require feeding tubes and assess the nutritional requirements of patients believed to be at nutritional risk based upon various factors such as age, gender and standard body weight indexes.
  • Home health aide training?
    Our dieticians participate in the formalized training of our certified home health aides. They ensure that all aides have a sound understanding of nutritional fundamentals and common dietary modifications such as low salt and low fat diets. They also provide training in the proper techniques to be used with clients who require feeding assistance and are sometimes called upon to work one-on-one with home health aides who serve clients with specific needs.

Medication Management
Medication management is a major concern for older Americans. In fact, more than 87% of people over age 65 take multiple prescription medications and people over age 75 take an average of eight prescription drugs on a regular basis. The VNA provides one-on-one visiting nurse consultation programs and information about electronic medication management devices to help prevent dangerous health implications that can result from inadvertent misuse of prescription medications.

Telehealth
Telehealth is an interactive system that monitors patient's vital signs and symptoms daily from the comfort of the patient's home. Eligible patients are loaned a Home Monitoring Device that sends daily health information automatically and securely to VNA. Once received, the health information is reviewed and we will make adjustments to the patient's plan of care, as needed.

This program was developed so that we can provide better patient care, assist in avoiding hospital re-admissions and pinpoint the best time for a home visit to occur. Through telehealth, we are able to provide personalized, individual care while patients are able to live more independently with confidence. Click here for additional information.
