In November, we look forward to the Fall season and Thanksgiving , but now we can be excited about ONE MORE THING!!! That thing is NATIONAL HOME CARE and HOSPICE MONTH:) Yes, National Home Care and Hospice Month is an official This is not any regular holiday but a huge accomplishment for the entire home care field, let alone the medical field. This month celebrates care provided in the home.
“Val J. Halamandaris, President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) called on all Americans to commemorate National Home Care & Hospice Month throughout November. He also called attention to Home Care Aide Week on November 10 to 16. These critical workers play a central role in their patients’ lives, and NAHC recognizes their efforts with this year’s theme: “Home is the Center of Health Care.”” Those who aide in home health care work long and hard to help the elderly and disabled. Some times they can affect whether a patient lives or dies in peace. This month is all about honoring those who dedicate themselves daily to serving patients in their homes throughout the US.
It’s been said that the home is the center of health care and in today’s world we see this to be true, more and more. “In coming years, home care and hospice are poised to play a central role in the delivery of healthcare throughout the country. A wide range of forces are joining to push care away from nursing homes and drive it toward home and community-based care. Based on demography and dollars, experts agree that the destiny of health care lies in the home.”
