AUGUSTA, Maine — Around the nation, more than 11 million Americans each year benefit from the work of home care and hospice caregivers, who are receiving special recognition this month, National Home Care and Hospice Month.
Throughout November, the Home Care & Hospice Alliance of Maine is highlighting the benefits of home care and hospice and the opportunities that lie ahead to increase access to care while reducing unnecessary costs.
In addition, home care and hospice agencies throughout the state are saluting the professionals and volunteers who are dedicated to providing physical, spiritual and emotional support to patients, and raising public awareness about the value of home care and hospice.
In honor of the caregivers in Maine, the Home Care & Hospice Alliance of Maine and the Maine Hospice Council have joined together to host the Annual Blaine House Tea on Wednesday, Nov. 7, to honor professionals and volunteers for their compassion and dedication to providing exceptional home care and hospice services for patients across the state. Providing welcoming remarks at the event will be First Lady Ann LePage, who will also be presenting the Governor’s proclamation declaring November as National Home Care and Hospice Month.
