November is Home Care and Hospice Month in Illinois,
a time to honor and thank home health nurses, aides, therapists,
social workers and other home care staff who are always there for us
whenever we or our loved ones need home care and hospice. These
services are delivered to recovering, disabled, chronically or
terminally ill individuals in need of treatment and/or support and
assistance with the essential activities of daily living.
To help families and caregivers find home care and hospice when
they need it, the Illinois HomeCare Council has recently launched a
Not only does this free resource answer basic questions about
these services, it allows consumers to search for home care and
hospice by service, provider, county or city, and by payment options

visit this important new website and to recognize those individuals
in your community who are providing care and comfort to homebound
individuals of all ages.
