Funding to support VNA's Advanced Care Institute with in-home primary care and palliative medicine on
Parker Foundation, Inc. has awarded a $2.5M grant to Visiting Nurse Association Health Group (VNA) to support its Advanced Care Institute (ACI), which 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. The funding will be used to expand the ACI’s efforts to provide in-home primary care through its “house calls” model and palliative medicine, two essential services in New Jersey and nationwide in addressing the aging baby boomer population. The funding will also enable both organizations – VNA and Parker – to develop and support new or improved programming in these areas.
