National Home Care and Hospice Month: Professional In-Home Care for Your Loved Ones
November is National Home Care and Hospice Month to recognize and honor the nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who have made a difference in patients' lives. With 3 out of 4 seniors ages 50 and older wanting to stay in their homes, more people than ever want to age in place at home, despite changes in health or mobility rather than going to a nursing facility. This month we want to recognize the dedication of providers in these fields and ask you to join us in celebrating caregivers and home health aides this month.
Caregivers play a crucial role in our health care system and homes across the nation by providing an essential service to people in their community. Home care can provide peace of mind for patients and their families while relieving the stresses involved with aging. Services include companionship, surgery assistance, chronic disease support, and personal care.
Benefits of having a home care professional looking after your loved ones:
- Reduces re-hospitalizations
- Easier for family and friends to visit than in a nursing home with restricted hours
- Tailored to the specific needs of each senior
- Maintain your relationship with your loved one while they’re being cared for
- Keeps them in their home where they are comfortable and familiar with surroundings
- Allows freedom and independence
- More affordable for most people than a nursing facility
- Alleviate feeling stretched thin between work, family, and other personal obligations
- Reduces the risk of infections or diseases
