November is National Home Care Month
This November 2010 is National Home Care Month.
You've had surgery at the hospital and are eager to return home but need additional therapy, help with dressing your wounds, and other follow-up care to get you back on your feet again ... home care is there for you.
Your elderly mother suffers from a chronic condition and is eligible for nursing-home care but is not yet ready to enter an institution, nor are you able to handle the level of assistance required for her to sustain her quality of life and care needs in the community ... home care is there for you.
A family member suffers from congestive heart failure, diabetes, respiratory disease, a disability, or another serious condition that requires ongoing care management at home to prevent unnecessary hospitalization, keep the patient out of the nursing home, and provide life-sustaining services ... home care is there for you.
All of these solutions are made possible by the home care nurses, therapists, home health aides and other direct-care staff who provide high-quality, compassionate and comprehensive in-home care to several thousand Cattaraugus County residents each year.
