Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care Celebrates ‘Circles of Care’ in Santa Ynez and Lompoc Valleys

On Wednesday, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care celebrated its Circles of Care with a complimentary wine and cheese reception at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez.

More than 100 people attended, including special guest Rona Barrett.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the wonderful circles of care that richly enhance our quality of life here in the Santa Ynez and Lompoc Valleys,” said Lynda Tanner, VNHC president and CEO. “All of us at VNHC are proud, and blessed, to be a valuable partner with so many families, physicians, friends and organizations that help provide health, independence, and dignity to our community.”

The reception was held in appreciation for the circles of care in the Santa Ynez and Lompoc Valleys who, together with VNHC, bring health and wellbeing to the community.

Tanner welcomed guests and expressed gratitude for staff, volunteers, physicians, clinicians, partners and friends. The agency’s reach and impact have grown significantly in the valleys since VNHC first started offering services there.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
