Porchlight VNA / Home Care

A nonprofit organization

2 donors

With the 2014 merger of Porchlight VNA/Home Care (formerly Lee Regional VNA and Berkshire Home Care) with Chicopee VNA and Great to Be Home Care, we have over 100 years of providing compassionate, exceptional care.  Porchlight is a comprehensive resource for all home health needs, including: skilled nursing, therapies, 24-hour care, telemonitoring, social work, and maternal and child health. We have a unique Home Visiting Nurse Practioner Program to assist with reducing the need for hospitalization.  

Our corporate office is located in Lee and we have branches in Chicopee, Pittsfield and Lenox. Our services cover all of Berkshire, Hampshire, and Hampden Counties. We serve thousands of people each year and employ over 400 people. As a free-standing non-profit, we also serve as the Board of Health for several towns and regularly conduct community education and engagement programs to support our mission. These initiatives include, falls prevention courses, school nursing, and flu and blood pressure clinics. 

As a nonprofit agency, Porchlight raises funds to ensure its programs and services are available to all in the community. We have a Low Income Fund, which allows clients that have fallen on hard times or may not be able to afford services to remain in the agency’s care and independent at home. Without the Low Income Fund, many seniors would not have the assistance of certified nursing assistants, homemakers, or other caregivers when they are at their most vulnerable due to illness or frailty. In the past, the fund has been used by clients struggling to afford care and also make mortgage payments and/or pay medical bills after an unexpected illness has left them homebound and in need of home healthcare.

We are the only Western Massachusetts agency rated five stars by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  We have received several HomeCare Elite™ Awards of Excellence and Massachusetts Department of Public Health deficiency-free surveys demonstrating our commitment to quality and safety.  Porchlight VNA/Home Care is simply “Life As You Know It ®”.
