November is Home Care & Hospice Month
During the month of November, the home care and hospice community honors the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve. These heroic caregivers play a central role in our health care system and in homes across the nation. To recognize their efforts, we call upon all Americans to commemorate the power of caring, both at the home and in their local communities, and ask them to join with the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) by celebrating November as Home Care and Hospice Month.
In addition, Home Care Aide Week takes place the second full week of the month, November 7-13, 2021. Join us in honoring these compassionate, tireless workers who play an invaluable role for their clients as caregivers, companions, and friends.
