VNA Provides Help to Seniors & Caregivers
The Visiting Nurse Association of Northern NJ (VNA) is dedicated to helping Morris County seniors and their caregivers enjoy their very best quality of life!
If you’re a senior living alone and struggling with routine household and grooming tasks or you’re a caregiver for an elderly loved one, one call to the VNA could make your life easier. In fact, the VNA is a designated provider of free and low-cost grant-funded services for qualified residents of Morris County.
Help for Seniors Living Alone
If you’re on your own, you may be able to receive a few hours of weekly certified home health aide assistance through the Community Home Health Aide Program (CHAP). If trips to the grocery store are becoming a problem, a VNA House Call Groceries for Seniors volunteer can do your shopping and deliver your order for an administrative fee of $5.
Caregiver Support Services
Those who are caring for a loved one may be eligible for a break from their stressful routine under the NJ Respite for Caregivers program. Plus, VNA professionals are available to provide free one-on-one, in-home instruction under the Caregiver Education and Training Program, a service that’s open to all Morris County caregivers.
A Stress-Free Application Process
Although eligibility requirements vary from program to program, a friendly, knowledgeable VNA representative will take the hassle out of determining whether you qualify and handle the application process on your behalf. The VNA will also take the time to refer you to other community resources that offer additional services you need. Call 1-800-WE VISIT (1-800-938-4748) for personalized assistance.
