VNA Hospice of NWI is looking to build a TEAM of volunteers who conduct activities at local nursing facilities (like bingo, arts and crafts, seasonal activities, etc.) and put together other fun materials and plan events. We are calling this new team the Patient Experience Team for now (subject to change) because your job would be to bring the fun and Make Best Days Possible at our local nursing homes. Training will be provided. Again, we are looking for a team of volunteers, so the more the merrier!

About Visiting Nurse Association of Northwest Indiana

Location:

501 MARQUETTE ST, VALPARAISO, IN 46383, US

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. 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.
