Salutes Home Care Providers

To The Editor:

November is National Home Care & Hospice Month and I would like to take this opportunity to salute the nurses, therapists, aides, social workers, companions, housekeepers, physicians, phlebotomists, volunteers and chaplains who bring compassion, caring, professionalism and clinical expertise into the homes of the sick and infirm every day of the year and also to recognize the people who support them - the office staff, supervisors and families who provide the encouragement, assistance and foundation that allows

them to do the wonderful things that they do for folks in their homes.

I ask you to kindly do the same. You may not yet have come in contact with these folks. You may not have ever been in need of their services but rest assured that when and if you are, they will be there for you as they have been there for many of your friends and neighbors. Terry Shade, Executive Director Lutheran Home Care and Hospice Inc. Chambersburg, PA 17202
