VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice, a century-old 501(c)(3) nonprofit visiting nurse agency, brings you timely home healthcare services and extensive community care resources. Care that many thought could only be received at the hospital, nursing home or assisted living facility, can now happen effectively – and comfortably – in your own home and community.
Our expertly trained staff will help you recover and regain your independence quickly and easily.
As a nonprofit agency, we are proud of our dedicated staff, volunteers, board of directors, community partners and donors. Together, we have become a leader in healthcare at home and the self-care movement across Southern Connecticut.

Shoreline Village Readmission Reduction Project
Working with the Shoreline Village Connecticut, a membership organization, that provides members with discounts, social programs and volunteer help, VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice is providing home healthcare services to a group of high-risk patients. Our mutual goal is to reduce the risk of hospital readmissions.
Frailty Best Practices
Home healthcare agencies provide service to the most vulnerable frail elders. Working with a physician geriatrician and an interdisciplinary staff of home healthcare professionals, VNA Community Healthcare has developed a unique set of assessment and intervention tools, designed to help frail seniors gain back strength, physical mobility and better quality of life.
