The Mission of the Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association, Inc. is to provide excellent community-based health care and support services throughout the continuum of care.

OUR VALUES • To affirm the dignity, worth, and quality of human life in all of its phases • To promote creativity and lifelong learning in an atmosphere of cooperation, teamwork, and fairness • To be honest and maintain confidentiality in all of our interactions • To be a financially viable, cost-effective not-for-profit organization that meets the needs of clients and staff • To maintain excellence as evidenced by positive, measurable outcomes

OUR VISION To be the home health and hospice provider of choice to our community through continued excellence in healthcare services and business practices.

“There are multiple reasons I enjoy working with VNA. We really look at the patient as a patient, and not just as a number, and we really focus on their care. Patients come first, before anything else. We want to make sure people’s health is taken care of.”

“I’ve worked for VNA for 22 years now. It has been very rewarding. My favorite thing is working with patients. I like the one-on-one experience I have with them in their homes. They are more comfortable in their own home around their own possessions.”

“I really like working for VNA because people get to be at home so they’re happier, their attitude is really good, and they’re usually very positive about getting better. I think they heal more quickly. Everything they are accustomed to is right there for them.”

“We’re a not-for-profit organization which I think is really important. There is more of a compassionate and caring environment. We’re able to take care of people in the timeframe that they need and where they need it.”

A LETTER FROM THE CEO

Cynthia Lewis

Visiting Nurses celebrated its 48th anniversary as a freestanding not-for-profit in 2017. This is a significant accomplishment during a time of mergers, acquisitions, and a growing number of regional and national agencies across the landscape of our industry. Home care plays an increasingly important role in the healthcare continuum, particularly as patients transition from hospital to home or strive to remain out of the hospital while coping with a chronic condition. Studies have shown that individuals who accept home care are half as likely to be readmitted to the hospital within 30-60 days as those who do not. It is Visiting Nurses’ ongoing mission to ensure our community benefits from high-quality, low-cost care in their homes.

Ongoing staff development to meet the evolving needs of patients is one of our priorities. Toward that end, Visiting Nurses sent four staff members to specialized training for dementia care certification in April. These certified staff can be assigned to individuals with unique memory care needs. It is our goal to have additional staff trained in the future so all aides will have this knowledge to benefit our patients. Our agency also plays a role in facilitating the education of future professionals by hosting students in a variety of healthcare programs. In 2017, Visiting Nurses provided shadow opportunities for nursing students and interns from both physical therapy and community health. We see ourselves as a vital resource for learning in the expanding area of community-based health care.

A MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT Congratulations to Visiting Nurses on celebrating its 48th anniversary in 2017. Its role as the only not-for-profit, freestanding home health and hospice agency based in Douglas County is essential to the patients and families it serves. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has estimated there are more than 8,000 home health agencies in the United States, serving more than 2.4 million elderly and disabled people annually. Home care facilitates patient safety and quality care outcomes to patients in their homes. Additionally, the multidisciplinary nature of home care administers a Sheryle D’Amico comprehensive range of services to meet the potential needs of the patient, allowing them to rehabilitate where they are most comfortable. This is why care for patients is being driven into the most appropriate setting — commonly their home. The services provided by Visiting Nurses are crucial to helping patients who are recovering from surgery or an acute illness, managing a chronic condition, or transitioning to the end of life. On behalf of the Board of Directors, thank you for your ongoing support of Visiting Nurses Association! Sheryle D’Amico Board President, Visiting Nurses Association

Visiting Nurses has a large number of community members who represent and support us outside of our usual operations. Starr Pugh represented VNA in the Transformations “All-Stars” gala in January. We were also honored to have one of our former Hospice volunteers, Evan Jorn, presented with the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Champion award in April. Evan graciously donated his time and musical talents to our patients for many years and chose to recognize our Hospice program through this award. Each year brings changes in those who comprise the VNA “family.” In June, Mitzie Gimblet, our Medical Records Clerk of 24 years, retired. Emily Donaldson and Dr. Paul Morte ended their terms as Board members. Lori Heasty and Travis Sullivan joined the Board, and Carol Wheeler returned to serve again. In September, the agency lost a dear friend with the passing of Arthur “Artie” Shaw. Artie was passionate about Visiting Nurses, particularly our Hospice program. Even after his terms on the Hospice Advisory Committee and the Board of Directors ended, he remained a committed Hospice volunteer and facilitator of the quarterly volunteer group. The rapidly changing healthcare environment that includes increasing regulation and decreasing reimbursement consistently forces Visiting Nurses to be operationally nimble. Despite all challenges, you will see in this report an organization that is vibrant, responsive, and 48 years “young!” Cynthia Lewis CEO, Visiting Nurses Association

I was amazed at how well you all helped me to get through that.” —Pat, wife of former Hospice patient

KU School of Business employees wrapping gifts for the Marcel family

ANGEL FAMILY In 2017, Visiting Nurses Association was able to help facilitate a very special gift for a VERY special family when the KU School of Business came calling and wanted to “adopt” a family for Christmas. Immediately, one family came to mind, a family who had been through so much. The Marcel family, including David, Cathleen, their son Nicholas (age 9), and Cathleen’s mother, Beth, had received some devastating news. Cathleen’s brave journey with cancer had reached a point where treatments were no longer working, and Cathleen needed to seek out comfort care through VNA’s Hospice. With Cathleen becoming weaker by the day and Christmas right around the corner, all involved knew this was an especially challenging time for the family. On December 14, 2017, the sun set on Cathleen’s journey as she was surrounded by her family. Understandably, Cathleen’s family was burdened with grief at this most difficult time; however, the kindness of all of the employees from the KU School of Business who came to their aid was a bright light. This group of generous individuals, otherwise known to the family as “the angels,” provided a carload of gifts to this family in need — including every item on Nicholas’ list, and even a gift card to The Toy Store so he could pick out whatever his heart desired. These gifts made the Marcel family’s hearts a little lighter on Christmas day. It gave them a moment of happiness that they will never forget. To our friends at the KU School of Business who made this possible, THANK YOU!

BEREAVEMENT CARE AND GRIEF SUPPORT

PATIENT SATISFACTION

Visiting Nurses Hospice bereavement care goes beyond the 13-month period mandated by Medicare. VNA believes that bereavement care and grief support are essential components of hospice care and the grieving process. Each person takes their own journey through grief, which is why VNA offers a broad spectrum of support, all of which is open to both patients’ families and the community.

The skilled and certified staff at Visiting Nurses strive to exceed the expectations of our patients and their families/caregivers. We evaluate this through standardized surveys for our Home Health and Hospice programs, and an agency-specific survey for our Help at Home program. Providing excellent care to our patients is our number one priority as we continue to serve our community.

Life After Loss – A Bereavement Gathering is a confidential program that includes presentations, workbook-driven discussions on managing the grief process, as well as written and experiential activities. The group is open to anyone who seeks support and information after experiencing the loss of a loved one.

HOME HEALTH (medical)

Caregiver 101 is designed for those caring for a loved one through the end-of-life process. Information, resources, and confidential support are offered by others who understand the special benefits and unique burdens of caregiving. Multiple Losses/Managing Complicated Grief Workshop helps participants understand how grief emerges naturally after a loss and how to recognize and deal with complications that can stall or halt the healing process. Participants may share their story in this compassionate setting, learn about what complicates grief, and discover treatment options and resources to help move forward while honoring losses. The First Year offers an opportunity to learn about the natural grief process and what to expect in the first year after the death of a family member or friend. There is no wrong way to grieve a loss. This group offers tips, tools, and resources from the Grief Toolbox, as well as support and encouragement from other survivors.

VNA exceeded the state and national benchmarks for the following:

VNA scored better than 100% of other Home Health agencies serving Douglas County when looking at rehospitalization rates

Patients who would recommend VNA for Home Health Services

HOSPICE (medical)

Keepsake Place is an afternoon art and activity workshop for school-aged children, teens, and their parents/caregivers who are grieving the death of a close family member or friend. Managing Grief through the Holidays is a light-hearted gathering to provide support, information, and ideas for celebrating holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and other special days after the loss of a loved one. Casual Coffee offers opportunities for anyone who is grieving to drop in for coffee and conversation with others and receive informal, uplifting support. Individualized Grief Counseling and Bereavement Support resources are available through VNA in many forms, including newsletters and written grief resources, personal and confidential phone calls with a grief counselor, and grief counseling for individuals or families in their home or at the VNA office with the VNA bereavement team.

The fun-filled night at The Oread raised vital funds to support VNA’s mission.

Health Fairs Every year, VNA’s Marketing and Development departments staff various health fairs in the community. These events provide an opportunity for community members to ask questions and receive information and education about VNA services.

Mitzie’s Retirement After 24 years of commitment to VNA, Mitzie Gimblet transitioned into retirement in June 2017 to spend more time with her grandchildren and gardening. She served as VNA’s Medical Records Clerk and also designed the VNA Memorial Garden and maintained it for the last decade. She continues to care for the Memorial Garden as a volunteer.

Activities in Facilities VNA works with local independent living and assisted living facilities to provide fun, engaging activities — Bingo, Rummikub®, and more — for residents.

Health/Flu Shot Clinics VNA continues to promote good health and prevention practices by providing numerous health care screenings. Blood pressure and flu shot clinics are offered throughout the year for people in the community.

Exercise Clinics Physical and Occupational Therapists from VNA’s Home Health program lead exercise clinics throughout the year to encourage exercise and good health. The chair and standing exercise classes are enjoyed by many residents of independent living facilities where VNA cares for patients.

Pet Therapy Margene Swarts and Toto are two of several pet therapy volunteers with VNA. Toto is a 9-year-old cairn terrier mix, the same breed as Toto from the movie, “The Wizard of Oz.” Margene and Toto visit Arbor Court twice a month to bring smiles to the faces of residents with fun tricks and loving cuddles. They have been going to facilities as volunteers since 2013.

Rockin’ and Rollin’ with Richie In the winter months, VNA Hospice volunteer Richie Lyman visits local senior living facilities to help residents recall heartwarming memories with the soundtrack of their youth. Richie takes his audiences on a trip back in time with hits from Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Pat Boone, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Ricky Nelson, Frankie Avalon, and other popular recording artists from the ’50s and ’60s.

Transformations Gala VNA Hospice volunteer Starr Pugh returned to the stage for the 2017 All-Stars edition of the Transformations Charity Gala in which candidates represent a social service agency of their choice in a pageant-style event. VNA employees and supporters enjoyed watching Starr on stage while she competed for charitable funds to benefit VNA’s Hospice program. Grief Support VNA understands the importance of providing crucial support to survivors following the loss of a loved one. Various grief support programs are offered through VNA’s Hospice program to educate survivors of all ages and help them find ways to cope with their grief.

VNA EMPLOYEES IN THE COMMUNITY Toys for Tots/Blue Santa In the spirit of the holiday season, VNA employees donated many toys to Blue Santa and Toys for Tots in December of 2017. The donated toys benefitted children in need.

Coat Drive In 2017, VNA employees “shared the warmth” with Scotch Fabric Care Services’ Winter Coat Drive. VNA employees collected 13 coats to be cleaned by Scotch and distributed locally through the Salvation Army.

School Supply Drive For the eighth year in a row, VNA employees gave back to children in the community by donating school supplies including four backpacks, 31 spiral notebooks, 16 boxes of crayons, 15 packs of markers, 35 glue sticks, 144 #2 pencils, and many more items students will need throughout the school year. The VNA School Supply Drive provided these important supplies to the United Way in a community-wide effort to help children in need.

Memorial Garden The VNA Memorial Garden at the Community Health Facility allows employees and community members to donate a plant, dedicated to a patient or loved one that has passed away. The garden provides a way to honor patients and loved ones with a donation that will help their memory live on, while providing a beautiful sight for those entering the Community Health Facility from the north.

Festival of Trees VNA employees have a long-standing tradition of donating items to trim the VNA Christmas tree that is donated to the Festival of Trees Fundraiser, benefiting The Children’s Shelter, Inc. The 2017 VNA tree, “Over the River and Through the Woods,” raised $950 for a great cause.

14

Employee Jeans Day Each Wednesday, VNA employees have the opportunity to wear jeans to work by providing a $5 donation each to a specified charity or cause which changes monthly. In 2017, Jeans Day raised $1,815 for nonprofit organizations including: the Lawrence Humane Society, the Lawrence Community Shelter, The Willow Domestic Violence Center, Audio Reader, Independence Inc., Douglas County United Way, Headquarters Counseling Center, and Toys for Tots/ Blue Santa.

Food Drive VNA employees generously donated 167 pounds of non-perishable food items to fill the barrel provided by Just Food in the 2017 VNA Employees Food Drive. These items were given to Just Food to help fight hunger in Douglas County.

MARCEIL LAUPPE EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR The Marceil Lauppe Employee of the Year Award is presented annually to an employee who exemplifies the mission and values of Visiting Nurses. In 2017, two dedicated employees excelled to meet these criteria. Melissa Transue and Teresa Wilson are the 2017 Marceil Lauppe Employee of the Year award recipients. Teresa has been around Visiting Nurses for several years. She always comes into the office with a smile on her face. Her coworkers have wonderful things to say about her: • “She is an exceptional Aide. As my coworker, there is nothing she wouldn’t do to help out in any time of need. All of her patients adore her and she goes above and beyond. She always pitches in.” • “She is wonderful to her patients and is a true asset to VNA, and it is an honor to work with her. She lives the VNA mission.” • “Teresa is a go-getter and is always willing to help when called upon. There is no job that she can’t handle. She gives personal care, goes to the coffee shop with her patients, and makes them feel wonderful. She also bakes the best cookies around. Staff members sampled a few of them when she took a break from Visiting Nurses and decided to try her hand at cooking at a local assisted living facility. She always was smiling and interacting with the residents there.” • “It was their loss and our gain when Teresa returned to VNA in September 2013. I would have done cartwheels if I could have.”

Melissa personifies the mission, vision, and values of Douglas County Visiting Nurses. She is repeatedly acknowledged for her patient-first approach by going above and beyond to ensure patients’ and their families’ needs are met. She often does so outside her regular work hours. One of her nominations for VNA’s weekly Care Award specifically reflects this: • “She was there all night, even after her normal shift, to make sure the patient was comfortable and his wife could get rest! Without her amazing care, he would not have been as comfortable as he was at the end.” Melissa consistently displays selflessness, approaching patient care in a manner that exceeds VNA’s value “to affirm the dignity, worth, and quality of human life” for Hospice patients. She is also a true team player and is willing to assist and support others to accomplish whatever is necessary: • “Melissa did a home health call for me because the call came close to 11:00 p.m. and she didn’t want me to have to get back out! She is a great coworker!” • “…I was on call on my way to see a patient when I arrived first to a motor vehicle accident. Melissa made the visit for me, which was greatly appreciated.” Congratulations, Melissa and Teresa, for being selected as the recipients of the 2017 Marceil Lauppe Employee of the Year Award. Thank you for your dedication to VNA!
