When you become a Member of VNA Homecare Options, you’ll have access to the personal emergecy response services you need. VNA Homecare Options offers a healthcare plan for Medicaid beneficiaries living throughout New York State.
For those patients at risk of falling or other emergency situations, we can help coordinate a personal emergency response system (PERS) as part of your managed long-term care plan. Personal emergency response systems offer a variety of devices that can be worn and are activated with an emergency care button in the event of a fall or other emergency requiring help. Several different types are available and can even detect falls without being activated by the individual.
Personal emergency response systems are offered as part of our managed long-term care (MLTC) plan, which includes in-home and long-term healthcare for our Members. Find out if you are eligible to join and become a Member.
