Giving Thanks

As part of Take Care Private Duty Home Health Care‘s Wellness Friday celebration, this month we recognize November as National Home Care & Hospice Month. Take Care thanks our caregivers and staff for their continued commitment and support in the private duty home health care and geriatric care management fields. At Take Care, we provide a service to others and in order to extend our caregiving services one must ultimately be a caring person. We place the welfare of others before ourselves. Our focus at Take Care is providing services to our clients and to our community with empathy, compassion, sensitivity, and understanding. It takes a special person. We continue to service Sarasota, Bradenton, and Venice, Florida with the highest quality in private duty home health care and geriatric care management services.

As Peter Drucker said, “No organization can do better than the people it has.” The commodity Take Care has is our people. What we provide is a service through our people. A company in the caregiving health care industry cannot achieve greatness without having great employees. Take Care commits itself to hiring only the best. This month we all come together and are thankful for what we have to give to others, whether our family, our children, or our Take Care clients.

Reach out and thank those who are impacting your life in some way.

Read more about the National Home Care & Hospice Month and why it is recognized this month, collected from NAHC‘s website:

“The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), and its members across the nation, have again declared November as ‘National Homecare Month and National Hospice Month.’ The themes for 2009 are as follows: Homecare: Love in Action and Hospice: Great Care at Last.

The intent of this campaign is to raise public awareness concerning both hospice and homecare. Hospice aspires to help people live fully until the end of their days. Homecare is the provision of physician ordered physical therapy, or skilled nursing plus the attendant personal care, which assists the disabled person in getting out of bed, dressing, and other personal maintenance, as well as basic survival in instances where they may not be able to even feed themselves.

What is homecare? The answer is freedom. It is the right to continue to stay at home in independence, where you prefer to be, even in the face of major health problems. Homecare means having a high quality of life. And when the end comes, hospice means helping people to settle their unfinished business; crossing the bar with dignity, grace and joy, and in supporting their families -the survivors who mourn their loss.”

What Our Clients Have to Say

I was a so nervous about both my parents but knowing they are not driving and that they have someone caring for them and managing their medications on a daily basis was a relief—not sure if I can even explain how much it means to me. I just started a new position in China and knowing my parents are safe is a blessing. You all have worked to establish a way to keep them safe in their transition of accepting care.
