Bringing care and comfort to the St. Louis community

For more than 100 years, the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater St. Louis has been bringing care to people where they live, where they work, wherever they are. As a leading nonprofit with a focus on serving an aging population in the region, VNA’s programs and services help bring care and comfort to individuals and their caregivers.

Hospice Care helps patients and families live fully each day by providing end-of-life services to those with terminal illness such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, cancer, and end-stage respiratory failure and heart failure.

VNA’s hospice team includes doctors, nurses, aides, social workers, chaplains and volunteers who help patients remain independent and present to their loved ones for as long as possible.

The Advanced Illness Management [AIM] program provides care to homebound patients with serious chronic illnesses. AIM eases some of the burdens of serious illness by providing care to patients through control of symptoms. It prepares patients and caregivers for transitions that may lead to fully independent living or preparation for end-of-life care.

In-home Private Duty Care services provide personalized, one-on-one support that helps patients maintain their independence and live safely at home.

VNA also helps combat feelings of isolation through the Visit-A-Bit program, which addresses adult and senior loneliness in the region using volunteers who weekly connect with homebound people wherever they call home.
