A changing model of healthcare delivery is the focus of $2.5 million Parker Foundation grant awarded this month to Visiting Nurse Association Health Group (VNA) to support its Advanced Care Institute.

The institute aims to address the healthcare needs of high-risk older adults who are often living with multiple chronic health conditions by providing high quality, compassionate care in the home and in the community.
According to a news release, the funding will be used to expand the institute's efforts to provide in-home primary care through its “house calls” model and palliative medicine, with the goal of helping the VNA and Parker to develop and support new or improved programming in these areas that help patients and their caregivers.
