November is National Home Care and Hospice Month and the Home Care Alliance has put up a special webpage full of resources and information to help agencies and advocates raise awareness.
The website promotes several informational pieces including:
- “The Agency Advantage,” which lists reasons why people should choose a home care agency over an independent direct-hire individual.
- “Your Care, Your Choice,” which highlights Medicare rules relative to patient choice.
- “Keeping It Legal,” which is a resource for home care referral sources about ethical practices under federal regulations.
- The Caregiver Video Resource Center, and more!
In addition, the website has a sample press release and letter-to-the-editor templates for agencies to send to their local media. Home Care Month is an excellent opportunity to recognize staff and be visible in the community.
