As a vital community resource, Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio is proud to care for our communities. We are dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of patients and families and helping individuals achieve optimal health and well-being in the comfort of home.
For individuals nearing end-of-life, choosing where to spend their remaining time may depend on their particular situation. Often, there may be a predetermined hospice plan of care, but for some, families should consider their options before the time arrives.
When a loved one is receiving end-of-life hospice care, it is the goal of family members and caregivers to relieve their suffering as much as possible, while respecting the individual’s wishes. Providing comfort throughout the course of hospice care can help improve the quality of one’s life during their remaining time.
Most caregivers spend their time worrying whether their loved ones are safe in their homes or if they require more care than they are able to provide. The constant worry often causes burnout and family complications. But home care services and other resources, give caregivers relief during these stressful times.
Since our beginning in 1902, volunteers have been at the heart of Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio. More than 110 years later, our volunteers continue to generously donate their time and energy into helping our patients and their families.
