November is National Home Care month and NHC HomeCare is looking forward to celebrating those who dedicate their lives to helping old, ill and disabled Americans remain healthy, stable and out of costly traditional settings. For decades, caring for the elderly, disabled and chronically ill at home has provided a dignified and high-efficient method of treatment.Home-based care is also clinically effective, utilizing advanced technologies and helping to cost-effectively manage chronic diseases that account for 75 percent of our nation’s health care spending. However, despite these savings, the current administration is recommending seniors and disabled Americans to pay a fee to access home health care.
