Our country is facing a crisis. It’s summed up in two numbers: 5 and 50. They stand for the 5 percent of patients who account for 50 percent of rising health care costs that threaten to cripple federal government and states. Home care is the answer to that costly 5 percent of Americans who suffer from multiple, chronic conditions. By keeping them out of hospitals and in their homes, home care saves money — and supports an even greater cause. Home care nurses and aides are the troops in the last great civil rights battle of our time, that to guarantee people the right to get the care they need at home. They combine high tech with high touch as they do what is best for the patients they serve.
This month we honor their ethics, empathy and effective work in giving quality care. Together, let’s bring home the message that home care is what our country needs.
