Services & Programs
Our team at NVNA and Hospice offers several services and programs to support our patients through any diagnoses. Whether you opt for in-home care or care at one of our facilities, our team will provide you with the high-quality care you deserve.
Our specialty programs are designed for motivating and empowering patients with chronic diseases and help our patients remain at home with the best possible quality of life. Coordinated by our multi-disciplinary specialty teams that address all aspects of patient care, our clinicians are able to provide patients with continuity of care between departments.
Our hospice services are provided to patients during the last phases of a terminal illness in the comfort of their own home or in our home-like setting. For anyone needing hospice on the South Shore, our staff provides quality hospice services, emphasizing the quality of life by focusing on what’s important for each patient.
Before, during and after a loved one’s death, hospice bereavement services are an important support system that assists patients, families, and caregivers with their respective grief. Coordinated by a licensed clinical social worker, our bereavement services provide families and caregivers with a continuum of care through a supportive bereavement program that continues for 13 months after the loss of a loved one.
Private Home Care
Ordered by a physician, private home care services require skilled care by nurses or physical therapists. Our team offers several home care services, including palliative care, nutritionists, rehabilitation therapy, and home health aides.
Palliative care is an extension of home care services and is available at any point during a serious illness and does not depend on the patient’s prognosis. Support, comfort, and quality of life are the cornerstones of palliative care, which supports a holistic approach to relieve suffering and provide quality of life so patients can live as fully as possible.
Often times after hospitalization or other medical event, home rehab will be required. Rehabilitation services in the comfort of your own home can make all the difference when it comes to retaining independence while recovering and healing. Our home rehab services range from physical, occupational, and speech therapy.
