To Request Services from the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Lowell

Anyone (patient, family member, professional caregiver) may request an evaluation for home health care services by contacting our Intake Department at:

978-459-9343
or
800-349-8585

 

 

You can also ask your physician to make a referral to us. Or, if you are being discharged from a health care facility (hospital, rehabilitation unit or nursing home), speak to the social worker/case manager there about a referral to the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Lowell.

INTAKE FAX - 978-459-0981

These are some of the questions we will ask:

* Name and address of patient
(to determine if the patient is living in our service area)

* Condition of patient/your concern
(to help us determine if our services are appropriate to meet the patients needs)

* Name of physician
(the physician must order services and approve the plan for home care)

* Insurance coverage
(so that we can inform the patient of how and to whom costs will be billed)

 

Every year we admit nearly 5,000 patients of all ages. Generally, VNA home health care is appropriate for patients who:

* have recently been discharged from a medical facility and still need professional health care

* have been diagnosed with a condition that requires teaching and information about medications, coping and lifestyle adjustments

* have a medical need for short-term nursing or rehabilitation services at home until the condition stabilizes

 

With the information provided, we will coordinate with the patient, the physician, the case manager, insurance company, and appropriate caregivers to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

In most cases, home care services can begin within 24 to 48 hours of a completed referral.

If our services are not appropriate for you, we will suggest other community resources.
