CLEVELAND, Ohio (May 19, 2017) – Shanese Alexander is a home care aide at Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio. She was recently interviewed as part of a larger conversation on the efficacy of the healthcare industry on National Public Radio (NPR)’s “All Things Considered” program.
She represented a home healthcare perspective on what cuts to the Affordable Care Act could mean for patients that she visits in their homes. “That would mean a lot of people without service. Sometimes we’re the only people they see.”
VNA of Ohio’s Home Health program offers skilled nursing and home health aides for patients who are recovering from an injury or surgery or managing a chronic condition. The goal of the program is for patients to achieve independence by helping them wherever they call home.
