Cornerstone VNA offers Palliative Care

Cornerstone VNA is committed to providing patients and their families with trusted, compassionate and expert care and has recently added a new Palliative Care Program to improve the care for patients living with a chronic or life limiting illness.  In addition to a Hospice program, Cornerstone VNA now provides palliative care consultations and pain management services to help patients manage the symptoms of their disease.  Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with a serious illness.  Its focus is on providing patients relief from the pain and anxiety of a complex illness, regardless of the diagnosis.  It is appropriate at any age and at any stage of a disease.  Palliative care is different from Hospice care in that it may start at diagnosis, and patients receiving palliative care may also receive curative treatment for their disease. The primary goals of the Palliative Care Program are to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family and decrease the need for emergency room visits or re-hospitalizations.  Click here to learn more about Palliative Care.

Cornerstone VNA Offers Hospice Care

Hospice is a holistic approach to caring for people who have terminal illness. It involves a team of trained specialists available 24 hours a day, who provide medical attention, pain and symptom management, emotional and spiritual support tailored to an individual’s needs and wishes. Hospice is not a place – it’s a concept of care that can be provided anywhere that a patient calls home such as in a private residence, nursing home, assisted living or hospital. Our hospice team also provides compassion and support to grieving loved ones during the illness and for up to one year beyond the loss.  Click here to learn more about Hospice Care.

Cornerstone VNA Offers Life Care

What is Life Caretm?   Given a choice, home is where we want to be…for people of all ages.  But if we are experiencing health issues or growing older, being home alone can be more difficult, even challenging at times.  At Cornerstone VNA, our Life Caretm Program can provide a full array of services for you, from private duty skilled nursing care and rehabilitative therapies to assistance with activities of daily living, homemaking or simply the comforting presence of companionship.  Generally these services are private pay and are provided in addition to services patients receive under Medicare or private insurance.  If you have Long Term Care Insurance, coverage may be applied to the cost of most services.
