The Visiting Nurse Association of Florida (VNA) understands firsthand that care management is a full-time responsibility. It’s not uncommon for family members who are caring for a loved one at home to find themselves handling more than just their loved one’s immediate healthcare needs. Oftentimes, family members must manage their loved one’s financial obligations, doctor’s appointments, caregiver scheduling, medication refills, and so much more. When the demands of caring for a loved one become too challenging to manage alone, family members need someone to turn for trusted care management services—someone like the VNA.

Care management by the VNA connects medical professionals with family members who are caring for an aging loved one at home. Our care management team assists family members with managing their loved one’s health conditions and associated responsibilities, including:

  • Handling and monitoring basic financial transactions
  • Patient transitions to and from hospital stays
  • Coordination of home healthcare services
