VNA Meals on Wheels Delivery
Visiting Nurse Association of Northwest Indiana
VNA Meals on Wheels, as a not for profit program, depends on volunteers to help meet our mission to provide compassionate care and support for patients and their families. Meals on Wheels volunteers pick up pre-packaged meals at various locations for delivery to home-bound individuals in the community. Volunteers drop meals off to clients, and may spend time interacting. Often, the Meals on Wheels volunteer is the only contact the home-bound individual may have during the day.
About Visiting Nurse Association of Northwest Indiana
501 MARQUETTE ST, VALPARAISO, IN 46383, US
To be the foremost patient focused provider of aging hospice, palliative, and grief support in Northwest Indiana.
The Visiting Nurse Association of Porter County is a not for profit organization committed to providing the highest quality of care to persons in the community. In 1970, nurses from Porter Memorial Hospital in Valparaiso, Indiana, voiced their concerns about patients who were discharged but still needed medical care. In answer to their plea, the Visiting Nurse Association was founded in September, 1970 to become the first home health care agency in Porter County, offering nursing and physical therapy. Over the years, the VNA has responded to the changing needs of the community by adding services including speech and occupational therapy, home health aide services, nutritional counseling, medical social services and hospice. The VNA continues to provide home and inpatient hospice care, VNA Meals on Wheels, Lifeline, Companion Homemaker and children's grief support at the VNA Phoenix Center.
