What services are provided in Hospice?

Our team includes nurses, physicians, licensed nursing assistants, medical social workers, spiritual care providers, volunteers and bereavement counselors.  Our nurses are available 24 hours a day to monitor and treat symptoms, and will teach you and your family what to expect as the illness progresses.

Who pays for Hospice?

Hospice is a covered benefit under Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances.  We welcome you to contact us if you need further assistance with understanding your insurance benefit.  Our experienced staff is ready to help.

Is it too soon to begin Hospice?

It is never too soon to learn about hospice, even if hospice is not the right kind of care for you at this time.  It is best to access hospice services as soon as you are eligible.  In doing so, we will be able to provide improved symptom management, and provide guidance and support to you and your family during your end-of-life journey.

How does Hospice help my family?

Our goal is to provide physical, emotional and spiritual comfort to each patient as well as provide support to family members and caregivers.  Our staff guides family members along the way and helps them to understand what to expect. Cornerstone VNA offers bereavement counseling and support to families for 13 months beyond the loss of their loved one, as well as community bereavement support groups.

We Love What We Do and It Shows

Cornerstone VNA has received many local and national accolades in recognition of positively impacting the lives of families through their compassionate, high-quality care.

There are no words to truly highlight the genuine care, compassion, tenderness and love these selfless caregivers gave my mother in her final months and days. If you can, you will never regret giving your loved one the “GIFT” of Cornerstone VNA!

My family will be forever grateful to the VNA. My Grandmother received extraordinary physical, emotional and spiritual care and would not have been at such peace at the end of her life without the help of Cornerstone VNA.

I appreciated the wonderful care you gave my sister-in-law. I was impressed and comforted by your nurses, personal care attendants and chaplain. They were so caring, loving, patient and professional, which meant so much to me and everyone who loved my sister-in-law.
