Tabitha Celebrates National Home Health and Hospice Care Month

Each year in November, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) calls on all Americans to commemorate National Home Care and Hospice Month. Members of these teams play a key role in the health and well-being of our neighbors.

Tabitha honors the dedicated nurses, therapists and aides who provide exceptional quality health care and supportive services in clients’ homes throughout Nebraska.

Charity Ebert, administrator, Tabitha Home Health Care added, “These teams combine their technical expertise with compassion and do what is best for the clients and families they are honored to serve, wherever they call home.”
 
“These valuable team members make a difference each and every day, Tabitha Hospice Administrator Chris Wismer said. "They are serving their friends and neighbors in their community and are the definition of caring.”

As 78 million baby boomers continue to retire at a record rate, Tabitha Home Health Care and Hospice play an integral role in the delivery of local health care. These programs are especially important in remote and/or underserved rural areas of Nebraska. Tabitha provides hospice care in 28 Nebraska counties and home health care in 20 counties.

Families will seldom, if ever, face a more challenging time in life than when they’re receiving home care and hospice, but Tabitha helps to navigate and deliver peace of mind with exceptional service.

During this special month we pay tribute to our talented home care and hospice professionals who are there when and where you need them. They are among the reasons why home-based care is set to play a major role in coming years at the center of health care in our country.
