I can't say enough about how much our family loves the Stratford Visiting Nurse Assoc. My parents have been under their care on and off many times in the past 7 years. Everyone from the office staff to the nurses, aides and physical therapists have been, professional, kind, caring and patient with both Mom and Dad. They have gone above and beyond even coming for an emergency visit on Christmas day a few years ago. I have peace of mind knowing they are taking good care of them. I recommend them to any and everyone I know who is in need of home care.

Excellent care from Stratford VNA. This is based on family member under their care over period of several years. This agency consistently delivers prompt communication to family members what to expect, when their staff will be at the home, ( who arrive in a timely manner) and most importantly the prompt reporting of health status of the patient to the family MD, and the family members to deliver the best care to their patients. The best care for the patient ,and peace of mind for the family. Here is just one example....Having Stratford VNA prevented a "slight cold" from becoming a full blown, double pneumonia issue ,due to their consistent pattern of rapid response when our family was under their care. Due to new/worse symptoms observed by family in the patient , late in the day...(low energy, change in breathing) we called VNA. We were so relieved that within 1/2 hour of calling the agency a nurse was at the house. The nurse called the agency from the house. The family MD was notified. Antibiotic Rx was called into the pharmacy. Prompt attention and care prevented further , life threatening complications...and No ambulance, no ER visit for hours, NOT admitted at hospital! This is what health care is all about !! Many other examples of excellent, life saving care over the years. Thank you to all the nurses, therapists, office and support staff at Stratford VNA for all you do.

Let me start by saying I am not normally a review writer. However, after being a Stratford VNA patient for the better part of 2 years, and reading these slamming negative reviews, I felt a more balanced approach was needed. I first learned of the Stratford Vna while I was looking for home care once I was released from the hospital. Their online rating from different internet sources was the highest in my area. The Stratford Vna has expertise in large complex wound care, which was my special need. They came to the hospital, evaluated my needs, and anyone that knows me, knows full well I was evaluating them as well. The VNA came to my home and the everyday visits began. The nurses that came to my home and stayed for the care, were professional, of high caliber and knowledgeable of their craft. My wife and I eventually dubbed the three nurses who normally came as "the dream Team". Were there hiccups along the way, of course. But, in my mind, the true measure of any organization is how they resolve the problems that arise. In my case, the Strarford VNA worked very hard to successfully fix whatever needed fixing. With regard to care, my view has always been there is not a better advocate for my care than me, but the Strarford VNA comes very close. And that is what makes the Stratford VNA just fine with me.
