ROCKY HILL (November 17, 2021) – During the month of November, the home care and hospice community honors the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve.
These heroic caregivers play a central role in our health care system and in homes across the nation. According to the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) website, to recognize their efforts, we call upon all Americans to commemorate the power of caring, both at the home and in their local communities, and ask them to join with the NAHC by celebrating November as Home Care and Hospice Month.
Touchpoints at Home is a certified home health agency based in Rocky Hill and part of the iCare Health Network. At Touchpoints at Home, we provide Skilled Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Social Worker and HHA services. We cover a large part of the State from Somers to Meriden across to Bristol and Glastonbury. We are proud of the quality of care we provide and are excited to continue to grow. Our staff is dedicated to our patients and their families and we are so humbled to be invited into their homes and assist them on their journey to wellness.
The Touchpoints at Home team celebrated National Home Care and Hospice Month with a staff appreciation party for all of the home care staff. Members of the iCare leadership team came to express their thanks to the staff and to meet the team in person. Each staff member received a thank you card and a gift and we got to spend some time together.
“Home care and hospice nurses, therapists, aides, and other providers who choose to use their lives to serve our country’s aged, disabled, and dying. This noble work deserves our recognition and praise and we celebrate November as Home Care & Hospice Month for that very reason.” said NAHC President William A. Dombi.
