Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association History
Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association was founded in 1947 by a group of civic-minded business and professional people who saw a need for the provision of home care services as an alternative to institutionalizing the frail, elderly, sick and disabled.
The agency is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the community as part of the health care delivery system in cooperation with other organizations.
In 1965 Livingston became licensed and certified by Medicare as a home health agency. In 1981 the Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association affiliated with the Livingston Memorial Foundation, a separate foundation in our county, which supports our mission of subsidized care.
In 1987 the agency developed a Medicare-certified hospice program to provide skilled professional care for terminally ill patients. This incorporated skilled nursing care with a multidisciplinary team designed to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the terminally ill person and his/her family.
In 2003 our palliative care program was developed to complement our home health and hospice care.
In 2015 we were again granted accreditation by The Joint Commission (TJC). Accreditation is given only after an extensive onsite review confirming that national standards of excellence in home healthcare have been met.
Livingston Memorial VNA Health Corporation, Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association and Livingston CareGivers recognize the growing need to provide services in the home environment for the sick, handicapped, elderly, terminally ill, and homebound.
As community-supported nonprofit organizations, they strive to provide professional and supportive home health and hospice care services of the highest quality in the most cost effective manner to the people of Ventura County to ensure a positive patient outcome.
Livingston explores and develops health-related programs based upon community need and acceptance, economic viability and availability of resources to provide services.
Livingston is sensitive to the financial circumstances of its patients and provides needed services, including those at reduced or no charge to indigent patients, based upon the available resources of the organization.
