As the nation celebrates National Homecare and Hospice Month, Lifeline Health Care of Clinton encourages everyone to take a moment and express sincere gratitude and appreciation to the clinicians, support staff, and family members who serve as caregivers for friends and loved ones in our community and across the country.

Many times, these caregivers serve on the front lines of the healthcare system. And as the world confronts the COVID-19 outbreak, the service and sacrifices they make on a daily basis should be recognized as never before. This year, it is especially important that we show clinicians and caregivers everywhere the appreciation they deserve.

Their contribution to the mission of healthcare providers is irreplaceable. They selflessly and tirelessly provide care for the sick, elderly, and most needy among us. They are a lifeline and a source of hope for so many in need, and are a direct reflection of the values and spirit of service that form the core of the healthcare industry.

Since 1984, Lifeline Health Care of Clinton has served our community and the surrounding region with in-home care. They help patients seamlessly transition from the hospital to home, and rest and recover in the place where they are most comfortable.

Home healthcare is convenient, cost-efficient, effectively reduces the risk of avoidable readmissions and supports faster recovery and patient independence. For many patients, recovering in the comfort of home has a therapeutic value that enhances the healing process.

Under the direct supervision of physicians, home health clinicians help patients of all ages make the transition to in-home care. Home healthcare professionals help patients recovering from illness, injury, or surgery, as well as people living with chronic conditions such as diabetes or congestive heart failure.

As we celebrate the month together, the staff at Lifeline Health Care of Clinton stands with our nursing and caregiver colleagues in our community, across the nation, and around the world. Together, we will improve healthcare in our nation.
