On October 21st, the Home Care Aide Council will recognize the more than 60,000 home care aides in the Commonwealth with a Home Care Aide Recognition Day. 

To highlight the work of these critical caregivers, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will recognize more than two dozen home health and home care aides by sharing their stories. 

The Home Care Aide Council salutes all home care aides and especially the Home Care Aides nominated by our members today, who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic, providing high quality services with care and compassion despite the risks and challenges presented by the Coronavirus. Here is a list of the nominees.
