November is Homecare and Hospice Month!

Homecare Insider, November 9, 2012

It’s time to celebrate! It is once again National Home Care Month and National Hospice Month. The National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) uses November as a time to honor healthcare administrators, nurses, clinicians, therapists, aides, homemakers, chore workers, and companions.

NAHC develops themes for National Home Care Month and National Hospice Month each year. The themes for this year are “Celebrating Freedom—Quality Care at Home” for homecare and “Taking Care and Compassion to the Next Level” for hospice. Each campaign is celebrated through local and national festivities, advertising, and public relations activities. NAHC member agencies around the country invite local celebrities - from lawmakers to prominent citizens - to visit homebound patients as part of their celebrations.
