According to the organization’s leadership, the expansion meets the demand of local health care providers who wanted to offer additional home care service options to their patients. It also addresses the growing needs of the aging population in the area.
The Team at Cornerstone VNA offers specialized care at home and advanced technology to provide highly skilled nursing, rehabilitative therapies, social work, personal care and more to patients of all ages. Cornerstone VNA provides a full range of services through its five distinct programs including Home Care, Hospice Care, Palliative Care, Life Care-Private Duty, and Community Care.
