This November we celebrate the heroes who serve and assist with the lives of our patients every day. Their daily service can make a significant difference in the lives of not only the patients themselves but their families as well. An increasing demand on health care providers and the benefits of receiving care at home, Home Care and Hospice services have grown to be many families’ choice in providing care for their loved ones. The latest data from the Department of Labor shows that the demand for home care services continues to grow as America ages and baby boomers begin entering their golden years.
Forrest General is joining with the National Association for Home Care and Hospice in celebrating National Home Care and Hospice Month in November.
“While home care and hospice each provide different services at different points in a patient’s life, they both are designed to give state-of-the-art medical care in the comfort of a patient’s own home,” said Forrest General Home Care and Hospice Director Melita Miller.
Forrest General Home Care was named to the HomeCare Elite™ for the fifth year, including them with the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. The HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of agencies and further highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall.
