Alliance Executive Director Pat Kelleher submitted a letter to the editor of the Boston Globe regarding a March 28 article that “blurred the line” between home health aides and personal care attendants. See an excerpt as well as a link to the entire letter below.
I AM concerned that your March 28 front-page story, “Costs, concerns rise on home healthcare,” blurred the line for some readers between two categories of workers: home health aides and personal care attendants. This confusion would do a disservice to the home health industry and the many clients – mostly frail and homebound elders – who depend on these essential services.
