November is National Home Care Month – Honoring All the Professionals that Serve Patients and Their Families

November 14, 2014



Every November, HCAF celebrates National Home Care Month by working to create more awareness for the importance of home and community based services, as well as giving extra recognition to the nurses, therapists, aides, administrators, and other staff members that contribute to the compassionate care of seniors and the disabled in their homes.


HCAF is encouraging our members to get involved in these efforts as well. Here are some of the ways you can help:


Members are also encouraged to join HCAF’s advocacy efforts. HCAF has begun organizing meetings with legislators in order to help build relationships between HCAF members and their local elected officials. Stay tuned to future issues for specific times and dates in your area.


You can also support home care by giving to the Home Care PAC during National Home Care Month. PAC funds are used to help further the goals of the Home Care industry, such as eliminating the home health quarterly report, negotiating higher rates, and more.


Whether it be certified agencies, private-duty, or companionship services, HCAF would like to recognize all of our members for the outstanding work they do to keep patients in the setting they prefer the most to receive care, their home.

In addition, HCAF Executive Director Bobby Lolley will submit an op-ed to every Florida newspaper to promote home care and HCAF members. (more…)
