On this special Memorial Day, the Home Care Association of America joins the nation in honoring all military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Representing nearly 4,000 home care organizations across the country, HCAOA and its members are dedicated to ensuring all veterans, no matter their age or disability, are able to remain in their own home, living as independently as possible. Whether veterans need assistance with their daily routine or medical care, home care agencies work closely with the Veterans’ Administration’s Community Care Network program to ensure access to care.
“It is our privilege to assist our nation’s veterans, said Vicki Hoak, HCAOA Executive Director. “Home care organizations are committed to bringing care to preserve veterans’ independence. Additionally, our Veteran Affairs Services Advisory Council advocates on behalf of veterans to receive the care and services they need to remain safely at home.”
“As we remember those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country’s freedom, HCAOA members seek to honor their memory by providing care to our nation’s veterans. The HCAOA VA Advisory Council appreciates the opportunity to work with the leadership at the VHA Office of Community Care, TriWest Healthcare Alliance and Optum, to help veterans age with dignity at home,” said Doug Robertson, Chair of the Veterans Affairs Services Advisory Council.
Our membership across the country is proud to serve veterans. HCAOA members bring care to the homes of thousands of veterans every day. We also use this holiday to rededicate ourselves to serving veterans so they can live as independently as possible in their own homes.
“We are proud to work together with hundreds of home care providers across the country who constantly take care of thousands of Veterans. Here at Paradigm, Memorial Day is an everyday event.”, says Danny Shapiro, CEO of Paradigm Senior Services, an HCAOA Associate Member.
Greg Bean, MHA, Director of Operations, Visiting Angels, stated: “It is an honor and privilege to support the Veteran men and women who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice of life, so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have in this great country! As a fourth-generation veteran, I see it as my responsibility to do everything I can to make sure we provide the very best care for our veterans and their families.”
HCAOA encourages all members to honor veteran clients in their communities. We thank all veterans for their service and are proud of the work HCAOA members provide to veterans every day.
