Home VNA Volunteers visit our Hospice patients in the nursing home, or private home setting to provide companionship or brief respite care for the caregiver. Volunteer duties may include reading to patients, listening to music, watching a movie, or making a small snack. Patient volunteers are asked to complete our background check process and training program both online and in person.
At VNA of NWI, our volunteers are an integral part of our team and assist in many of the day to day activities that help our agency run smoothly. In order to safeguard the patients and families in our care, volunteers may be asked to complete background checks, TB tests, online training programs, continuing education in-services, and other required documentation in order to volunteer with our team. Please contact our Volunteer Services Coordinator, Erica Kerkes, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 219.531.8057 if you are interested in volunteering with VNA of NWI.
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.
