The Hidalgo County Commissioners Court recently proclaimed November as National Home Care and Hospice Month. The proclamation is in honor of the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists and social workers who make a difference for those they serve.
Accepting the proclamation was Texas Association for Home Care and Hospice Board President Jon Scepanski.
“We help the elderly and disabled preserve their dignity and maintain their independence while receiving care in a home setting,” said Scepanski.
In addition, an awareness campaign highlights home care and hospice as alternatives to hospitalization and other forms of institutional health care.
