November is National Home Health and Hospice Month! The purpose of this month is to raise awareness concerning what these services provide to the patient and families. Patients receiving home health care after a surgery, for instance, experience quicker recovery. And did you know...that Hospice is NOT a place? Instead, Hospice is a special kind of care that gives the patient a chance to choose how he or she wants to live life...to be at home...to be with loved ones...to be pain-free and as comfortable as possible...when the patient can no longer be cured.
