On November 19, 2015 Mayor Tony Young signed a Proclamation to recognize November as National Home Care Month.
The Proclamation stated:
WHEREAS, home care services provide high quality and compassionate health care services to those in need, especially at times of community or personal health care crisis; and
WHEREAS, home care is the most preferred method of health care delivery among disabled, elderly, and chronically ill individuals eager to live independently in their own homes as long as they possibly can; and
WHEREAS, home care services allow families to stay together, and provide for greater health, dignity and comfort in our communities; and
WHEREAS, home care in the United States is a growing alternative to hospitalization or other institution-based forms of health care for acute, chronic and terminal illnesses, providing care to millions of Americans each year; and
WHEREAS, thousands of everyday heroes such as home care nurses, therapists and aides work tirelessly to provide professional health care and support to millions of Americans in need of quality health services; and
WHEREAS, these dedicated home care professionals and volunteers form a support network that continues to play a vital role in health care delivery for our nation’s disabled, infirm and aging population; and
WHEREAS, Amedisys Home Health Care, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, and thousands of home care and hospice agencies across the United States have declared the month of November as National Home Care Month and are calling on all Americans to observe these occasions with appropriate ceremonies and activities; and
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, I, Tony Young, Mayor of the City of Campbellsville, do hereby proclaim November 2015 as NATIONAL HOME CARE MONTH in Campbellsville, Kentucky and encourage the support and participation of all citizens in learning more about the home care and hospice concepts of care for the elderly, disabled, and infirm.
