November is a chance to recognize the dedication and innovation of providers of health care at home. It is an opportunity to acknowledge recipients of in-home care services, and celebrate that they are able to remain in the safety and comfort of their own homes while receiving quality care. Home health, home care, and hospice & palliative care providers have always been important to vulnerable citizens in our communities. When given the option, patients want to receive care in their homes. We believe that desire is stronger today than it has ever been. The Association for Home & Hospice Care of North Carolina is proud to represent and support hundreds of providers in our state. To learn more about healthcare at home, please click here
Words from AHHC President and CEO, Tim Rogers
"Each year we raise up and celebrate our home care and hospice providers and workforce and fight to increase awareness of the value in empowering our most vulnerable patients to age and deal with chronic illnesses with dignity in the home,” said AHHC President and CEO, Tim Rogers. “With the senior population predicted to outpace children 18 and under in North Carolina by 2031, healthcare needs will only increase. The overwhelming majority of elderly and chronically ill patients prefer to remain in the comfort of their homes, surrounded by family and friends. We are grateful to Governor Roy Cooper for acknowledging the many challenges facing agencies and a stressed workforce and further expressing gratitude on behalf of the State of North Carolina for those working in and for home care and hospice. We, too, encourage all to learn more about your options of care and share your wishes with your family, loved ones, and health care professionals.”
