Mission Statement

To be the foremost patient focused provider of aging hospice, palliative, and grief support in Northwest Indiana.

Description

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. Today the VNA continues to provide home and inpatient hospice care, VNA Meals on Wheels, Medical Guardian help button, and children's grief support at the VNA Phoenix Center.
