VERNON - The SBM Charitable Foundation has awarded a $87,050 grant to Visiting Nurse & Health Services of Connecticut, Inc. (VNHSC), to provide support for their telehealth program. The program helps to meet the medical needs of low income and vulnerable patients by providing clinical services remotely (at no cost to the patient), and gets them to take care of themselves at the highest possible level and in their own home. Benefits of VNHSC’s Telehealth program include better access to high quality care; earlier intervention; tools for them to manage their illness; reduced hospitalization and emergency department visits; ability for patients to remain independent longer; and an enhanced patient quality of life in between our home visits. Visiting Nurse & Health Services of Connecticut, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to home health, hospice and community-based health care.
