November is National Home Care, Hospice and Palliative Care Month. It is a time to honor the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, social workers, spiritual care providers and volunteers 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. This month is also an opportunity to provide greater awareness and education about the benefits of these services and important conversations every family should have regarding their health care.
Join Cornerstone VNA as we celebrate our clinical experts and the exceptional care they provide throughout our Home Care, Hospice Care and Palliative Care Programs. Check our blog and social media posts throughout the month of November for stories and information about the care we provide at home for people of all ages.
The theme for this year is “It’s About How You Live”. As we kick off this month of recognition, we are proud to share some great testimonials that resonate with this theme.
