November 13-19 Marks National Home Care Aide Week

hha

GENESEO, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2022 – Each year, during the second full week of November, members of the healthcare community pause to celebrate compassion and professionalism as the National Association of Home Care has designated November 13-19 as Home Care Aide Week in the United States.

This year alone, across the globe, it is estimated that home care workers will travel roughly 8 billion miles to deliver home-based healthcare treatments.  In the United States, nearly 90% of Americans surveyed indicated their desire to age in place.  As a result, home care is the preferred method of health care delivery among the disabled, elderly and chronically ill.

Each year, home care health aides service more than five million Americans with compassion, dedication and expertise.

November is also National Home Care and Hospice Month - a time to honor 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, the Livingston County department of Health calls upon all to commemorate the power of caring, both at the home and in their local communities, and join with the National Association for Home Care & Hospice by celebrating November as National Home Care and Hospice Month.  

This year, Hospice will serve and guide more than 180 families through the final phase of life. Livingston County Hospice is proud to be the exclusive provider of hospice services in Livingston County. For more information on Hospice care, please call 585-243-7290 or visit the County's Hospice website
