Visiting Nurses Association - Program and Services
Visiting Nurses Association's Hospice offers specialized treatment and compassionate
care for patients and families coping with a terminal illness. VNA Hospice's focus
is to assist caregivers in offering supportive services to allow patients to live
in their choice of residence with the greatest degree of comfort, dignity and control.
Hospice commits to helping patients and families cope with illness and maintain
or enhance the quality of life. Hospice affirms life. It neither hastens nor postpones
death. Hospice is for patients who have chosen to no longer seek curative treatment.
Rather, they choose a plan to be free of pain and symptoms and to attain a mental
and spiritual preparedness for death.

approach of professionals and volunteers. VNA is licensed to provide hospice services
in the following counties: Winnebago, Boone, western McHenry, and Ogle.
