Skilled Nursing for Home Health Care
People in Bennington and Rutland Counties in Vermont turn to the VNA & Hospice of the Southwest Region (VNAHSR) during times of illness or injury so they can remain where they most want to be — at home. Our expert clinicians bring state-of-the-art care, education, and support into patients’ homes to help them achieve their health care goals.
How Home Health Care Helps
VNAHSRs home health care services allow some people to come home from the hospital sooner, avoid stays in health care facilities, or learn to manage a newly diagnosed illness or disease.
From providing customized care to individuals with a chronic illness or condition, to providing post-operative short-term care, home health care services can help individuals remain independent at home.
