The VNS Long-Term
Home Health Care Program

Our Long-Term Home Healthcare Program (LTHHCP) offers a greater level of care for
individuals that would otherwise be medically eligible for placement in a hospital or residential
healthcare facility for an extended length of time if such a program were unavailable. Also known as a
"Nursing Home Without Walls," the VNS LTHHCP serves adults of all ages who have chronic illness.

The goal of our program is to encourage and maintain your independence and autonomy to the highest degree
possible -in your home, where you'd rather be.
