U.S. Celebrates National Home Care and Hospice Month in November
Date:10/22/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Val J. Halamandaris, President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), today called on all Americans to commemorate the power of caring, both at home and in their local communities, by celebrating November as National Home Care and Hospice Month.

"It is highly appropriate that we take a few minutes of our day to celebrate the nurses, therapists, aides and other providers who have chosen to use their lives to help infirm, disabled and dying Americans.

He pointed out that home care is not just for the elderly but has comparable importance to young and middle-aged Americans -- especially chronically ill and disabled children.

"Seventy-eight million Baby Boomers will soon hit retirement age, and a large percentage of them will begin to need help to remain independent in their own homes," said Halamandaris. "At this point, there is no Federal program that helps much with these needs, which also affect as many as eight million more persons with disabilities who are younger than age 65. The needs are vast, and we don't have anywhere near the number of people providing home care services that we need."
