Long Term Care or In-Home Care?

September, 28th 2021 in Industry News & Commentary

Considering the next steps of care for an elderly loved one is something that should not be taken lightly. Often times when we think of elderly care, the first thought that comes to mind is to place them in a nursing home. Although nursing homes can provide care for their patients, it can’t be matched to the level of care and services that home health care services can provide. With home health care services such as Visiting Nurse Services in Westchester (VNS Westchester), your loved ones can receive an excellent level of care from our skilled team of registered nurses, rehabilitation therapists, home health aides, and medical social workers all from the comfort of their own homes.  

Here at VNS Westchester, we pride ourselves on offering the best care for our patients and ensuring families that their loved ones are in good hands. Several benefits come with choosing home health care with VNS Westchester’s elite staff of home health care professionals which includes:

1) Affordable Care: VNS Westchester accepts reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid, and from a variety of private insurance plans. Our staff will verify your insurance and advise you as to the exact coverage you will be receiving. In addition, we can also speak to your physician about insurance, billing, and reimbursement for home healthcare services.

2) Rehabilitation Services: With a team of over 80 rehabilitation professionals, VNS Westchester has one of the largest teams of skilled professionals and has helped patients regain mobility, manage everyday tasks, and regain speech. Through a carefully designed individualized plan of care, our patients achieve optimal health and independence all from the comfort of home.

3) Specialty Services: For patients who have serious illnesses or chronic conditions, VNS Westchester provides specialty services.  Specialty services included are cardiac disease management, telehealth monitoring, advanced wound & ostomy care, pain management & palliative care, and chronic disease management.

4) VNSW at Home: Through our VNSW at Home affiliate program, patients receive complete and attentive home healthcare services such as skilled nursing, rehabilitation therapies, medical social workers, and home health aides that are selected individually, specialty-trained, and NY State Certified.  Your loved ones will receive a detailed in-depth initial assessment, a comprehensive personalized plan of care in conjunction with their physician, and regular visits by one of our RN Care Managers.

5) Community Care Navigation Program: The level of care and needs of our loved ones change as they get older, which can make the transition challenging. Through our Community Care Navigation program, we help those adapt to their new circumstances and receive the highest caliber of care with a customized plan that covers all facets of wellness so that they can age in place and achieve the best quality of life.
