Skilled nursing and skilled therapy describe services such as:
Administering and monitoring medications
These services are provided by a licensed nurse or therapist. Skilled nursing and skilled therapy are not offered within Grand Oaks, but are, however, offered through the VNA of Florida.
The VNA of Florida is a Medicare certified home health agency that has been providing award-winning in-home healthcare since 1976. Our nursing with the VNA involves a licensed nurse managing, observing, and evaluating a patient’s needs and medical status as well as teaching the patient and his or her family members how to continue making healthy progress. Many of the services associated with our nursing can be covered by Medicare. The VNA works with each client to create a unique, client-specific schedule to fit each client’s needs.
Our 38-foot-long mobile medical clinic, the Florence Nightingale Express, travels our 13-county service area providing essential exams, tests, vaccinations and treatments to indigent and uninsured at no cost.
If you are familiar with the Visiting Nurse Association of Florida, you might already know about the home healthcare services we’ve been providing for nearly 40 years. But there are some things you may not know about us, such as our Foundation that provides healthcare to people in the community who are contending with hard times, unemployment, even homelessness.
