Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Home care and hospice resource

Send a link to a friend

Dear Editor:

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 new website, www.homecareheadquarters.com.

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 such as Medicare and Medicaid.

On behalf of the Illinois HomeCare Council, I encourage you to 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.


Jan Costello
Executive director
Illinois HomeCare Council
