National Caregivers Day is Saturday, February 18
National Caregivers Day is a day to honor the many caregivers who work so hard to care for others. At Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA), we understand the burden home care can place on family members and friends. Seniors “aging in place” (at home), those with chronic medical conditions, and patients recovering from surgery often require care over a very long period of time. That’s why we offer respite care – assistance that relieves some of the burdens and allows caregivers a little time for themselves to deal with their own physical and mental health as well as their own chores.
Here are the services available to caregivers:*
*These services are made possible through grants received from the Morris County Board of County Commissioners, the County of Hunterdon Board of County Commissioners, and the New Jersey Department of Human Services. Eligibility requirements may apply.
Many of our patients and caregivers rely on Medicare, Medicaid, and supplemental insurance, which very often do not cover all the care they require. If you would like to help, please visit our Donation page.
