We’re Thankful for Caregivers
When November comes around every year, we start thinking about Thanksgiving and the people and things we are grateful for. So it’s fitting that November is also dedicated to the many people who provide care and whose work touches so many. November is:
- National Family Caregivers Month,
- National Home Care Month, and
- National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.
Fortunately, the dedication and, often, sacrifices, of family caregivers are receiving more attention these days. Lots of studies have reported on the numbers of family caregivers in the U.S. (an estimated 53 million) as well as the impact caregiving has on their lives. We see it first-hand with many of our own clients – the dedication and hard work of family members committed to helping their loved ones. We understand the challenges, and you have our admiration and respect.
In the U.S., millions of nurses, home care aides, hospice workers, social workers and others make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve. These heroic caregivers play a central role in our healthcare system and in homes across the nation.
Many of those heroes work here at Family Home Health, where our mission is “To lead the way home by making a difference in the lives we touch.” When caregiving overwhelms family members, we are here to provide the care and services needed, whether it’s a little help around the house, in-home nursing services, or hospice care. We’re grateful to be called upon to help and provide our expertise.
Our vision is: Being the premier provider of healthcare in an ever-changing world by staying true to our core values. Our core values are empower, nurture, respect, integrity, compassion, and hope. Those values guide our work, and we consider ourselves your partner in wellness. We invite you to learn more about what we do, and how we can help you or your loved one if and when the need arises.
As the old saying goes, “When you have your health, you have everything.” We wish you excellent health!
