Nominations include aides who have volunteered to take on additional shifts, aides who have been willing to work with COVID positive consumers. 

The Council sends out a press release and posts photos with the event Hashtags on all of the Council's social media and  encourage all Council members to do the same. The hashtags are: 







On June 24th, the Home Care Community is came together to 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, the home care community recognized over 100 home health and home care aides by sharing their stories.

The Home Care Aide Council salutes all home care aides and especially the 50+ 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.

Attentive Home Care in  Marion has purchased signage for the front of their building indicating "Heroes Work Here". 

Attentive wanted to make it known that we are actively in the community helping serve those that can't help themselves. Home care is critical in maintaining the well-being of all elders and  the disabled and allowing them to remain  in their homes and out of the nursing homes at this time and moving forward. 

As Home Care transitions further into 2020 and beyond, we believe more than ever, that home based Health Care will increase as a viable and important service for any community.
