When you are sick, where would you rather be treated? Bets are, you would prefer the security and comfort of your own bed in your own home. More than 4.5 million Americans agree with you, which is why we are celebrating National Home Care Month and National Hospice Month this November.
When your mother, father, sister, brother and neighbor are struggling with a disability, dealing with a chronic or terminal illness, or recovering from a recent hospital stay, home care and hospice professional caregivers have the answer. Modern home care has all the bells and whistles of hospital care, with the exception of surgery. Today, patients can receive everything from chemotherapy to shampoos. Home-care providers work diligently to keep your family members in their homes, where they belong.
As we prepare for Thanksgiving and recall our many gifts, please remember the home care and hospice professionals who make a difference every day for our nation's seniors, disabled, and infirm. They make it possible for home care to be where the healing begins.
