Cornerstone VNA Expands

Cornerstone VNA Expands to Serve Southern NH Seacoast Towns

 

Cornerstone VNA, a local nonprofit health care provider, is proud to announce the expansion of its service area to include the Seacoast towns of Stratham, Hampton, North Hampton, Hampton Falls and Seabrook. With the addition of these five communities, Cornerstone VNA now offers home care, hospice, palliative, private duty and community services to over 40 towns in New Hampshire and Maine. According to the organization’s leadership, the expansion meets the demand of local health care providers who wanted to offer additional home care service options to their patients. It also addresses the growing needs of the aging population in the area.

 

The Team at Cornerstone VNA offers specialized care at home and advanced technology to provide highly skilled nursing, rehabilitative therapies, social work, personal care and more to patients of all ages. Cornerstone VNA provides a full range of services through its five distinct programs including Home Care, Hospice Care, Palliative Care, Life Care-Private Duty, and Community Care. These services are designed to improve the quality of life for patients and to help them live safely and independently in the comfort of their home.

 

According to Cornerstone VNA President/CEO, Julie Reynolds, RN, MS, “Over the years, there has been a significant increase in demand for our services, and we are excited to welcome these new towns to our service area.” She adds, “Many people want to remain at home as long as possible, and I am grateful to our team who provide such wonderful care and support to help our patients, families and caregivers achieve this goal.”

 

In addition to the programs offered by Cornerstone VNA, residents in these five towns will now have access to free educational programming, volunteer companion services, and family caregiver support. Also, the expanded Palliative Care program at Cornerstone VNA now includes a physician and several nurse practitioners who provide expert care and symptom management to patients living with chronic illnesses. Through an innovative and award-winning Telehealth program, Cornerstone VNA is pleased to offer remote monitoring to high-risk patients, which improves quality of life and reduces the number of emergency room visits and re-hospitalizations.

 

According to Jennifer Gullison RN, MSN, Vice President of Operations, “To meet the needs of our local referral sources, we are proud to expand to include additional Seacoast area communities! By expanding our service area, these communities can benefit from Cornerstone VNA’s expert care for individuals of all ages.”

16th Annual Seacoast Half Marathon

Register for the 16th Annual Seacoast Half Marathon to Benefit Cornerstone VNA

 

Mark your calendars! The 16th Annual Seacoast Half Marathon, one of coastal New Hampshire’s longest-running half marathons, has been set for Sunday, October 31st in Portsmouth, NH. This year, the Seacoast Half Marathon is offering a hybrid model, giving runners the opportunity to participate either in-person or virtually. Virtual participants can select from three distance options, which can be completed on the route of their choice between October 23rd and October 31st.

 

Each year, 100% of the net proceeds from the event are donated to a mindfully selected seacoast nonprofit organization. Traditionally, the Seacoast Half Marathon committee selects a new nonprofit beneficiary each year, but this year is different and has been billed as a rerun! Since the 2020 race transitioned to a virtual event due to COVID-19, and did not produce the same level of fundraising for Cornerstone VNA, the Race Committee decided to remain with Cornerstone VNA as their 2021 beneficiary. This all volunteer committee is proud to continue this beloved autumn race tradition, as well as maintain their philanthropic tradition of supporting a local nonprofit beneficiary.

 

This year’s beneficiary, Cornerstone VNA, is an independent nonprofit organization providing home care, hospice, palliative care, private duty services, and community health and wellness programs. As a local health care provider, Cornerstone VNA has been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, caring for patients of all ages, from birth through end-of-life. “The pandemic certainly posed some unique challenges for last year’s event, so we are deeply honored that the committee has chosen us as their beneficiary once again,” states Erika Lee, Advancement Director at Cornerstone VNA.

 

According to Bruce Hurley, longtime Seacoast Half Marathon committee member, “We feel like Cornerstone VNA certainly deserves a shot to do this when there is not a global pandemic underway and would like to have them continue to be the beneficiary for 2021 when hopefully, maybe the world is closer to normal.” Jay Diener, Seacoast Half Marathon Race Director adds, “We are looking forward to working with our friends at Cornerstone VNA again this year, their frontline work this past year has been paramount to the wellbeing of our communities and we cannot think of a more powerful way to illustrate that than to once again partner with them on our historic race.”
