A Brighter Future Together with LeadingAge

February 19, 2019 – Today, VNAA and ElevatingHOME take an important step towards increasing our impact and influence across the full continuum of services and supports for people as they age. We have entered into an agreement with the intent to affiliate with LeadingAge. Our organizations have shared visions, similar missions, and a deep commitment to service. Together, we are committed to high quality, person-centered care for individuals in any setting they call home.

VNAA and ElevatingHOME are member-led organizations working to expand the definition of and conversation around home-based care, supporting providers of home health and hospice services. Many LeadingAge members currently offer these services; we also have several members in common. We believe that together we will have an even greater impact in advocating for sound public policy, in serving our members, and in fostering innovative practices that will lead to the transformation in service delivery.

Over the next several months, our three organizations will move forward in the process of achieving strategic and operational alignment. We believe that bringing together VNAA's clinical practice expertise, ElevatingHOME's commitment to strengthen home-based care, and LeadingAge's tradition of serving the full continuum with a focus on shaping the future to meet the needs of an increasing number of older adults creates significant and exciting opportunities for all of us. 

We are grateful to the leadership of LeadingAge for their trust in VNAA and ElevatingHOME, and we look forward to a successful future together.
