From the Owner (Sponsored)

Established in 1934, VNA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that helps older adults age with dignity and independence at home. VNA was chartered as a nonprofit to address the need for home health care in the midst of the Depression. Committed to providing the highest quality care to the elderly, frail, disabled, and dying, VNA’s staff strives to keep patients and clients at home as comfortable and independent as possible. VNA cares for people of all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds and with donations from the community, VNA provides charitable care to uninsured and underinsured patients offering services funded solely with charitable grants and gifts. VNA is the community’s most trusted provider of quality healthcare services in the home and is the oldest, most experienced Hospice Care provider in Texas. VNA offers Meals on Wheels in Dallas County, and VNA Hospice, Palliative Care and Private Care in Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Grayson, Henderson, Hunt, Kaufman, Navarro, Rockwall, Tarrant and Van Zandt Counties. VNA Care Choices is the first Medicare-sponsored home-based palliative care program available. As a pioneer in innovative health care concepts, VNA was the first hospice provider in the state of Texas and was one of the first hospice agencies in the nation. Serving as a leader in the field, VNA ultimately helped to establish the Medicare Hospice Benefit which is still available today. In keeping with our tradition of innovation, VNA is now in our second year of this ground-breaking program. VNA Meals on Wheels provides nutritious, hot, home-delivered meals five days a week to 4,500 homebound seniors and disabled adults who due to illness, advanced age or disability are unable to obtain or prepare their own meals. Our clients are the hidden hungry—homebound, aging and unable to access resources like food pantries and grocery stores. VNA’s approach to deliver more than just a meal, but also a connection to the outside world, creates a safety net reducing medical costs and allowing seniors to live a more fully nourished life. Volunteers are the heart of VNA with more than 5,000 volunteers providing more than 280,000 hours of service throughout the year and can accommodate groups of all sizes for projects year-round. Volunteers help in a myriad of ways including not only delivering meals, but serving as the eyes and ears for VNA, alerting staff if/when there is a concern with a client. Additionally, every route a volunteer delivers in lieu of a paid driver saves VNA enough money to feed another senior for an entire week.
