COSHOCTON -- In recognition of the many important contributions of the nation's home care and hospice professionals and volunteers, Interim HealthCare will be celebrating National Home Care and Hospice Month this November.
Interim HealthCare will launch its Home Care and Hospice Month festivities with a luncheon for all employees.
Each employee will also receive a token of appreciation.
Sponsored by the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, the month-long celebration pays tribute to the dedicated home care professionals and volunteers who enable elderly, disabled and chronically ill individuals to live in their own homes while receiving the services they need.
"The vast majority of people faced with disability or illness obviously prefer to remain at home instead of staying in a hospital or institution," said Cindi Harriman, branch manager. "Home care professionals and volunteers provide the high quality healthcare and the close, personal contact that allow people to receive care where they're most comfortable -- in their own homes."
