VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice has a long history of serving members of the community in their homes to help them maintain independence and stay out of the hospital. This remains our focus in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As is true for all members of the medical community, this outbreak poses risks to our nurses and other staff members that are only exacerbated by a shortage of protective equipment as well as cleaning and sanitation supplies.
Our staff members are entering the homes of patients to care for complex medical needs, taking every precaution to protect the patient and themselves from COVID-19, which can be transmitted by even asymptomatic people. They are also caring for recovering COVID-19 patients who have been discharged from area hospitals into homecare to make space for those who are actively ill.
We are in need of the following items:
- Lysol spray
- Lysol wipes
- Hand sanitizer
All items should be unopened. A donation box is located inside the front door of our building, the back building in Concept Park located at 753 Boston Post Road in Guilford..
We also welcome financial donations in support of our mission. To make a donation, click here.
Other ways to show your support:
If you want to show the community that you stand beside our healthcare providers who are serving those in need each day in the face of tremendous challenges, make a statement on social media.
Tag us in photos and posts so our staff, and all healthcare workers, know you appreciate the work that they do.
Be part of the #socialdistancing movement, both on social media and in practice, to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and let us know with your posts who you are staying home for by using the #IStayHomeFor hashtag, a campaign launched by actor Kevin Bacon.
We’re proud to do this work and we are always grateful for your support.
