With this said, we are pleased to recognize and acknowledge our caregivers for their commitment to patient care. This quarter’s Spotlight Caregiver is Hopeline Buchanan. She is a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who has been with the VNA for two and a half years.

When he was almost recovered, however, he suffered another unfortunate setback—a stroke. After spending an additional four months in a rehabilitation center, Vincent was able to return home yet again. Right away, Lynne requested home health services from the VNA. Patricia “Pat” Weir became their certified nursing assistant (CNA), spending five days a week at their home caring for Vincent.
