Throughout the month of November, we celebrate National Home Care and Hospice Month which gives us the opportunity to thank and show appreciation for the dedicated professionals, those behind the scenes and on the front lines caring for patients, caregivers and families. It’s a team comprised of administrative support, physicians, nurses, home health aides, clinical social workers, counselors, therapists and volunteers.
In these unprecedented times of social distancing and the need to protect our most vulnerable population, home health and hospice fill an important role in our medical industry with an added level of support for hospitals, facilities and doctors. In addition, it addresses the concern for individuals who may be at risk for social isolation. Weekly visits, monitoring conditions with telehealth, phone calls and video conferencing ensure patients maintain important personal relationships with their health care providers.
We are grateful for the men and women who are devoted to the well-being of others. Please join us in celebrating the professionals serving in home health care and hospice, whose dedication, compassion and innovations continually improve the lives of their patients, caregivers and loved ones.
