November: Celebrating National Home Healthcare Month
There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. – Jane Austen
In November, we here at Graham-Field, in celebration of National Home Healthcare month, honor the nurses, homecare aides, therapists, and social workers who travel to patients and their families so that they can stay where they are most comfortable – home. And as the National Association of Homecare & Hospice points out, “These heroic caregivers play a central role in our health care system and in homes across the nation.”¹
Home Healthcare is far-reaching; notice these statistics from NAHC.org:
- Homecare providers will travel about 8 billion miles to deliver the best health care in the world¹
- Ninety percent of Americans want to age in place, and home care is the preferred method of health care delivery among the disabled, elderly, and chronically ill¹
- Home care provides high-quality, compassionate care to more than 5 million Americans annually¹
Please join us as we say thank you to these tireless health heroes who make the lives of so many so much better!
