VNA established in Porter County
1970, nurses from Porter Memorial Hospital in Valparaiso, Indiana, voiced their concerns about patients who were discharged but still needed medical care. In answer to their plea, the Visiting Nurse Association opened in September, 1970 to become the first home health care agency in Porter
County, offering nursing and physical therapy.
Over the years, the VNA has responded to the
changing needs of the community by adding services
including speech and occupational therapy, home health aide services,
nutritional counseling, medical social services, Meals on Wheels,
homemaker companion care and hospice.
the Visiting Nurse Association is the leader in home health care for
Porter County and surrounding areas in Northwest Indiana. It is a not-for-profit home health agency, certified as a
Medicare and Medicaid provider, licensed by the State of Indiana and
governed by a board of volunteers from the community.
