November is National Home Care and Hospice Month
Every day, more and more families seek out care services provided in the comfort of home or at a hospice facility. For the aging and homebound, in-home and hospice care offers security, dignity, and the ability to maintain as much independence as possible.
National Hospice and Palliative Care Month recognizes the strength and compassion of the professionals and volunteers who help people live with dignity, comfort and support at the end of life. Its designated color purple is associated with spirituality, the sacred, higher self and passion.
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.
