VNA services for area familes are irreplaceable

Barbara Hanneke 7:32 a.m. EST November 21, 2015

I am the director of Harbor Impact Ministries and have the opportunity to speak to a lot of people about our services. Recently I have gotten into conversations with several people who are trying to care for profoundly ill family members. Because I am in the same situation, I tell people about VNA.

Our 42-year-old daughter was released from St. John Hospital unable to walk or talk or swallow. She had been in the intensive care unit for three weeks. Two thirds of her tongue was removed and reconstructed with muscle and veins from her forearm. She had a neck resection and skin grafts. We were unprepared for the condition she was in when she was released from the hospital. But Visiting Nurse Association and Blue Water Hospice was not unprepared. They surrounded our daughter and our entire family with their superb healing team including a nurse, a physical therapist, a social worker and a speech therapist. Their services were life-changing. Our daughter now walks, talks and even eats Spaghettios.

What a privilege to have such excellent home care in our community.

Thank you Visiting Nurse Association and Blue Water Hospice.
