November is Home Care & Hospice Month
In the home care community, November is dedicated to honoring those professionals that provide senior care assistance. These nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers take active roles in making a difference for those they care for and the families around them.
“Home care and hospice nurses, therapists, aides, and other providers choose to use their lives to serve our country’s aged, disabled, and dying. This noble work deserves our recognition and praise and we celebrate November as home care and hospice month for that very reason.” – National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) President William A. Dombi
