Nat’l Home Care and Hospice Month

Home Health VNA, Merrimack Valley Hospice and HomeCare, Inc. are joining home health and hospice providers across the country this November to celebrate National Home Care & Hospice Month. The agencies are working together to raise awareness of the comprehensive, cost-effective services they provide in the home, and to educate the public about how these services help improve the health and welfare of patients and families in this region.

This is an especially critical year in the home health and hospice industry. Steep cuts in state and federal reimbursement combined with reductions in insurance payments require that we find ways to be more cost effective and yet maintain our promise of the highest quality care to our patients. While economic challenges facing healthcare has presented us with a set of complex circumstances, our dedicated staff remain committed to their patients, the agency and the home health and hospice industry. We are honored to be of service to patients and families in the 90 cities and towns of the Merrimack Valley, Northeastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.

I am very proud of our work that enables patients to remain in the most comfortable and familiar setting: their own homes. This month as you begin to plan for the holidays, remember the home health and hospice professionals who, in this era of reform and change, still make house calls, rain or shine, to bring care home.
