Loaves & Fishes recently kicked off their new collaboration with the Visiting Nurses Association (VNA).
The group provides clients with blood pressure and other medical screenings on site as well as advice on things like insurance options and Medicare and Medicade coverage.
“We’re here to do some basic health assessments,” said Sonny Verama, the Vice President of Home Based Services at VNA Healthcare. “[We’ll] do some primary care visits and vision checks. If someone need additional care they can come visit us at one of our health centers to see one of our primary care doctors.”
The VNA traveling vehicle plans to visit Loaves & Fishes about once a month.
