Hospice 101 For Family Caregivers
The first and most important rule when considering hospice is to find a trustworthy hospice care partner. Established in 1898, The Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA) is the longest-serving VNA in the state of New Jersey. That’s 125 years of experience and innovation in helping patients and their families receive the medical care they need without giving up the comforts of home.
Our VNA hospice team is more than a group of medical professionals. We are teachers, motivators, and comforting shoulders to lean on. We are able to help the family understand what is happening with their loved one, how to help them, and how the family can help enhance the quality of life even at the end of life.
Our approach and capabilities are unique in that we provide a stress-relieving home hospice model providing supportive medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support.

Medicare and supplemental insurance often do not cover all the end-of-life care our hospice patients and caregivers need. If you would like to help, please visit our Donation page.
