We are accredited with the Diamond Program through the Wisconsin Assisted Living Association (WALA).

We are the first assisted living facility in the Fox Valley to achieve Accreditation in this rigorous program.  It is no small feat; it has taken a lot of time and resources, but we believe in the systematic quality process because it proves our first priority is always the safety and care of our residents and staff.

 “Valley VNA chose to undertake the challenging, but ultimately prestigious process toward accreditation,” said Jim Murphy, Executive Director of WALA. “Residents and families should recognize WALA Diamond Accreditation as a significant badge of honor and quality in assisted living.” Dennis Yadon, WALA Diamond Program Director added: “I have worked closely for over 3 years with the Valley VNA team to review and help them improve their quality processes. Valley VNA continues to be a leader in the area.”

Testimonials from our Staff!

I like working for the Valley VNA because as a universal worker, I get the best of both worlds. I get to work with in home clients and the residents in the facility. No matter what department you work in, everyone is on the same team. I have always thought this to be true, but the day I walked into the assisted living for a 6amshift and saw the president/ceo coming off the night shift, that is when I really believed it. Everyone works together to make sure our residents and in home clients get the care they need and deserve.

“I have been working here at the Valley VNA for 8 years. I work the night shift in one of our courts called Coral court. I consider the residents as my family. Every night I go to work I look forward to seeing my residents, “I think they look forward to seeing me!” With all the new assisted living establishments being built in the area, they are beautiful, but the Valley VNA is a place where the care our residents receive and how the Valley VNA treats their works out weighs any beautiful facility to work at. The workers here take wonderful care of our residents and truly treat them like family. The co-workers I work with here are great to work with, along with all of our managers and staff. The Valley VNA is a place where anyone looking for a rewarding job should come and apply here. It is a rewarding experience that has truly changed me life!”
