During November the home health care and hospice community honor 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. 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 join with Delta-Montrose Home Health Services, owned and operated by Delta County Memorial Hospital, and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) by celebrating November as Home Care and Hospice Month.
"There is no place like home," said DCMH chief clinical officer Jody Roeber, FNP, MSN, BSN, who manages Delta-Montrose Home Health "Let our team help you stay at home after a hospital stay or illness. We are proud of the care you will receive from the professionals at Delta-Montrose Home Health Services. The administrative team would like to congratulate the health care professionals that provide care in your home this November on National Home Health and Hospice month for the fine work they provide every day to allow you to stay safe and sound within your own home."
"We are privileged and honored to be able to take care for our patients in their own home. We always strive to respect the privacy and dignities of our patients assigned to us and provide them with the best care possible to help them to regain, maintain and improve their quality of life and health in their own home," stated Herbert Grigat, RN, MSN and director of Delta-Montrose Home Health Services.
With 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day, the need for health care will continue to rise, and costs will continue to skyrocket. This is where home care comes in. As the preferred choice for most patients, it also offers the greatest cost savings. For example, Medicare pays nearly $2,000 per day for a typical hospital stay and $450 per day for a typical nursing home stay. Meanwhile, home care costs less than $100 a day and helps many U.S. seniors remain independent at home, enrich their lives, and keep in touch with those they love.
