Nutrition Support

There are many circumstances when a person cannot ingest any or enough nutrients by mouth due to an illness or surgery, and the patient must receive nutrition in a different way. Nutrition can be provided either through a feeding tube (enteral nutrition) or an intravenous tube called a PICC line that is inserted directly into the vein (parenteral nutrition or TPN). The amount, type, and route of nutrition is determined on a case-by-case basis for each patient.

Valley Vital Care provides comprehensive home nutrition support services, including enteral and parenteral nutrition, to patients ranging from pediatric to elderly.  Our team of specialists includes nursing staff, pharmacists, and dietitians.  We coordinate between patients, caregivers, and other members of the healthcare team to develop an individualized plan of care for each patient and to facilitate an easy transition from the hospital to the home.
