Why the VNA
“I love working with parents as they help their children learn and grow.”

Fun Run Fun!
On Saturday, May 11, 240 participants and volunteers spent the morning walking, running, biking and jogging in our Vermont Respite House 5K Fun Run and Jiggety Jog.
Thanks to everyone who participated and to our corporate and individual sponsors, $49,500 has been raised for Vermont's only Medicare-certificed inpatient hospice residence.
That's right! We are only $500 away from our goal of $50,000. And there's still time to give. If you would like to help us reach our goal, you may either donate to a friend's fundraising page or you can donate on the VNA's First Giving page. All online pages will remain open through June.
For more information, please call Maria at 860-4435 or email email@example.com.

On December 15, 2004, my Mom and best friend died from lung cancer. Two months later we had to put our dog down. And after a long two-year struggle with a brain tumor, on April 17, 2005, just four short months after Mom died, my sister died. Camp Knock Knock helped our family in the grieving process.

I always tell people that one magical aspect of working with people with dementia is that you can still communicate, even if the affected person has lost the ability to speak coherently. I think that people with dementia develop a gift, which is the ability to communicate in a nontraditional way.
