We are Thankful for You and all You Do this Thanksgiving
Washington, D.C. – Thanksgiving is a very important time of reflection, centering on all the good that came from so many people in our lives over the past year. We each face so many challenges in our personal and professional lives, yet there are family, friends, colleagues, and others who remind us routinely how great it is to be a part of a community that truly cares about others. Together we amplify that good into life-changing action. Together, we are a powerful force.
We at NAHC offer thanks to you all on this special day.
- Thanks for continuing to expand the breadth and depth of health care services at home, breaking down a site-based continuum of care to one centered on patients and their choice of care settings—their own home.
- Thanks to the ever-heroic frontline caregivers, back-office support personnel, and home care executives and managers who confront and overcome all kinds of barriers to care every day ranging from natural disasters to pandemics to those obstacles created by third-party payers, regulators, and the overall economy. After nearly three years of Covid-19, you have shown the virus how it can be beaten. After hurricanes and floods in recent months, you have shown that nothing stops your provision of care. With staff shortages, payment cuts, and claims audits, you have shown what it takes to prevail.
- Thanks to all the home care partners in technology, consulting, education, financial management, continuous quality improvement, and many other areas that work alongside home care providers to deliver the best care in health care.
- Thanks to the 53 million-strong family and friends of home care patients throughout the nation, driven by a true caring spirit, for providing essential care to their loved ones. These family and friends join you at the core of home care.
- Thanks to our supporting federal and state legislators, regulators, and health care payers for recognizing the dynamic value of health care at home and advancing opportunities for people of all ages and infirmities to receive care at home.
- Thanks to all those throughout the world who recognize we are at our greatest strength when we work together for the common good and for the generations to come.
